Many people in my life have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Some have survived and are living examples of strength and courage, while others were taken too soon and are reminders that life is too precious not to fight for it. I'm walking because I can and I hope you'll support me. Every little bit makes a difference!
Please Know Your Your Breast Health...
The key to survival is early detection.
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. We must continue to keep breast cancer top of mind because it affects so many!
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That’s one in eight within your company, school and organization. Now is the time to take action, to secure a long, healthy future for our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends!
Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self- exams. It is important to make healthy lifestyle choices.
And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.
