We have two options, medically and
emotionally: give up or fight like hell...
Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM),
also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer
Awareness Month (NBCAM), is an annual international
health campaign organized by major breast cancer
charities every October to increase awareness of
the disease and to raise funds for research into its
cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.
The other day from our balcony we saw one of
the many marches organized this month. Hundreds
of people dressed in pink marching in solidarity
in honor of those who have cancer, those who
have overcome cancer, those who know someone
with cancer. Marching for a good cause just
because they care enough to make a stand.
Breast cancer awareness month is a yearly campaign
that intend educate people about the importance of
early screening, test and more. This campaign starts
on October 1 and ends on October 31 every year.
More than 20,000 runners and walkers took
part in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides
Against Breast Cancer Walk, Saturday morning.
The American Cancer Society started Making Strides
Against Breast Cancer walks to unite communities
in the fight against this deadly disease.
Today, Making Strides is the largest
network of breast cancer events in the
nation and they do more than just walk.
They raise money to help the American Cancer Society
fund groundbreaking breast cancer research and provide
patient services like free rides to chemo, free places to
stay near treatment, and a live 24/7 cancer helpline.

To fight this disease we must all work together for,
Cancer affects all of us, whether you’re a daughter,
mother, sister, friend, coworker, doctor, or patient.
Cancer can take away all of my physical abilities.
It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart,
and it cannot touch my soul. You gain strength, courage,
and confidence by every experience in which you really
stop to look fear in the face. You must do the
thing which you think you cannot do...
