Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October 1, 2018 - 1 minute read

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is an annual campaign for educating people about the importance of early screening, testing, and much more. Bronx Alumnae Chapter encourages learning about breast cancer and honoring those who have dealt with this disease.

  • Breast Cancer is the second leading cause of death among women.
  • Every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with Breast Cancer and 1 woman will die of Breast Cancer every 13 minutes

Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat, and cure breast cancer, and are working to ensure access to mammograms for women who need them.

BRONX ALUMNAE CHAPTER is committed to walking and fundraising with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. We hope you will consider joining our BXACDST team and/or making a donation in support of our efforts.

Together, we can make strides to end breast cancer!
