30 Day, 30 Reasons

Why breast cancer still matters after October

October – National Breast Cancer Awareness Month – lasts for only 31 days each year, but for the thousands of women and men affected by this disease, breast cancer is a harsh reality 365 days a year. Each day is a reminder of the ground we have covered, how far we still need to go and the urgency with which we must move forward to eradicate the disease that continues to kill 108 people every day.

With the onset of November, the passionate efforts rallied in the previous month to support breast cancer fall to the background. We are here to issue a month long reminder that breast cancer still matters even after October is finished. Every day throughout November, a new reason to continue the focus on finding the causes of breast cancer will be posted here.

Stay tuned, stay informed, and spread the word!
