As a woman, the chance of you having invasive breast cancer at some point in your life is a little less than 1 in 8. The chance that of you dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 36.
I want to do what I can to fight breast cancer and hopefully prevent my little girls from having to face those same statistics when they grow up.
We’ve all been touched and affected by breast cancer, either in our lives of the lives of women we love. It important for us to do what we can to make a impact in the fight against breast cancer. One great way to do that is through Making Strides.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) invests more money in breast cancer research than in any other cancer. Research to find, prevent, treat and cure breast cancer. With their Making Strides Initiative, the ACS is able to raises funds and awareness with over 270 walks nationwide each year. The walks are a chance for local communities to join together and honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness and raise money to help fight the disease.
Want to join me?
I’m going to be walking in Ashville, N.C., on October 20th with Jeannette from Adventures of JMan and Millerbug. If you live nearby, we’d love to have you walk with us! If not, you can learn more and find a walk close to your home at the Making Strides website. Most walks are between 3 and 5 miles long and you can walk with a friend, a team or come alone and make new friends!
Please consider joining this important fight and start Making Strides against breast cancer!
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the American Cancer Society’s nationwide series of walking events to raise funds and awareness to end breast cancer.
