The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks to raise awareness and funds to save lives from ravages of breast cancer.

"The whole pink-ribbon, breast cancer awareness campaign is focused on getting your mammograms and doing self exams, it says if you are diagnosed you will get chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and then you're better, and we are going to celebrate and run in pink tutus", Rhonda Brewer of MI told Salon.

More than a million people participate in these Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events each year - with a message much bigger than just fighting the disease. This year Avon joined us as the first ever National Presenting Sponsor. "Supporting breast cancer awareness and being part of the campaign shows the community how both topics are related and helps ladies to exercise more and to get check-ups". Avoiding breastfeeding and getting married at late were also considered as factors causing breast cancer. According to the American Cancer Society Cancer Facts & Figures 2018, more than 266,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die from the disease this year. "Working together with supporters, like you, is vital to our continued assistance of local breast cancer patients". "Without that, you probably couldn't get through it".

An audience member, Bashayer Abdul Aziz, one of the player's sisters, said: "I am really glad to have such events which really have such a meaningful propose to spread among the community". At her appointment, she learned the incredible news that her tests showed no signs of cancer.


"I just took the scissors and I cried and she cried and we cut it all off", said Jones.

"The thing that drives me insane isn't the extent of how many things are pink; I just really wish that all of the pinkness led to something more meaningful", she said. Even though breast cancer is less likely in men, it still happens. We should celebrate life every day.

"This year we made over $1,000 and in years past I would estimate anywhere between $650-$900", said Days Creek Athletic Director Ron Dunn, who's also the head volleyball coach.
