Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

T

he statistics are sobering: breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer among women in the United States and the second deadliest. Roughly one in eight women will experience invasive breast cancer at some point during their lives. Thankfully, the American Cancer Society (ACS) is there every step of the way, counseling and comforting these women. In fact, one out of every two newly diagnosed breast cancer patients reaches out to the ACS for help and support. The organization’s efforts have greatly improved the chances of survival – there are currently more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. On October 19th at Eastland Mall, the tri-state will have a great opportunity to honor breast cancer patients and survivors by participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. The event is designed to raise both awareness and money to help the ACS fight this disease. Over the years, these walks have raised more than $528 million for research, services and access to mammograms for women who need them. Last year alone, supporters helped raise more than $68 million nationwide. Registration is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. and the three to five mile noncompetitive walk begins at 9 a.m. Apart from participating in the walk, you can also get involved by fundraising, volunteering or acting as a sponsor.
