Thursday, October 9, 2014

This year alone, more than 230,000 women and 2,000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in America, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC).   October is designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we recognize all those who know the anguish of breast cancer, directly or indirectly.  National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a day set aside by Presidential Proclamation to reflect and honor those who have lost loved ones to this dreaded disease. We must continue to uplift those advocates who are dedicated to finding a cure to breast cancer.
 
Breast cancer can also affect males.  The American Cancer Society estimates that breast cancer will be diagnosed in about 2,190 men in the U.S. and will kill about 410 men this year.
