October is Breast Cancer Month!
Across the nation, businesses of all sizes are involved in raising awareness about this important cause. About one in eight U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetimes, according to data on breastcancer.org — meaning that you most likely know someone who is a survivor or is suffering or has suffered from this terrible disease.
As this is a cause that touches the lives of so many, you may like to consider getting involved. A variety of organizations provide ideas for fundraising, volunteer opportunities, and other support, such Susan G. Komen (ww5.komen.org), National Breast Cancer Foundation (nationalbreastcancer.org), and the American Cancer Society (cancer.org)
And if you are so inclined, wear your PINK with pride this month and share fun photos and stories so as a company, community and family we can continue to learn and grow.
