BENEFITING: BREAST CANCER CHARITIES OF AMERICA
EVENT DATE: Apr 22, 2018
As a nurse I get to see first hand how awful the impact of a breast cancer diagnosis is on a patient. Treatment, surgery and recovery is a long hard road. This year I had the misfortune of seeing that impact a friend. I got to see her fight, cry and survive through the trials and tribulations of cancer all while raising an 8 year old boy. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. ... A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it's easier to treat. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Please help make a difference. The funds go to cancer research and mammogram screenings.
