We know that this month’s issue has a lot of meaning to a lot of people. Unfortunately, the chances are that breast cancer has touched your life in one way or another, whether you are fighting your own battle, are a survivor, know someone who is, or have lost someone. According to the Center for Disease Control, 12.4% of women in the United States will develop breast cancer throughout her lifetime. This makes breast cancer the most common cancer among women, only second to skin cancer.
We felt we couldn’t let Breast Cancer Awareness Month pass by without trying to make a small impact by donating to breast cancer research. So, we want to share that feeling with our members and work towards a shared goal!
