National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. The National Cancer Institute estimates that this year alone there will be 232,340 new cases of breast cancer in women and 2,240 new cases of breast cancer in men. Help raise awareness in the fight against breast cancer by signing up for The Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday, October 19th and going out to support those participating in the Komen 3-day on Nov 1-3rd. For more information go to Komen-Dallas.org or The3Day.org. And to find out if you are eligible for a free mammogram at the YWCA please go to YWCADallas.org.
The embattled Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation has lost more than a few donations after a tumultuous year that included a shakeup of management. But a pledged donation from a website was quickly met with a “thanks, but no thanks,” from the group.
