We Are All "Aware" Of Breast Cancer

Now We Actually Have To Do Something To Wipe It Out In Our Lifetime

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

You already knew that, didn't you?

But did you know that, each year, it is estimated that nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die? Approximately 1,700 men will also be diagnosed with breast cancer and 450 will die each year.

Yes, we are making great strides in the battle to rid the world of breast cancer. Still, there remains so much more to be done.

As long as there is one person diagnosed, we all suffer. Families. Friends. Neighbors. All of us.

Okay. You know the drill.

Donate to your favorite charity to help find a cure for breast cancer, for improved diagnostics, early detection, treatment, and prevention.

And be sure to click on the Google Ad atop this blog (early and often), for each click (none costing you so much as a penny) will generate money, all of which received, during the month of October, will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

In eradicating breast cancer, we build a better, stronger community, and improve everyone's quality of life.

And that's what we're all about at The Community Alliance!
