October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
It’s October, and that means the pink ribbons are out in force... This year, our Peer Health Leaders will be out in Oliver Hall looking for your support by asking you to wear pink beads! Come check out our activity...
Most people don't become aware, or give Breast Cancer any attention, until it directly affects them. But awareness and prevention are key players to stopping this disease. Come learn about Breast Cancer and make yourself aware!
Did You Know:
- About 1 in 8 women in the United States (12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
- In 2010, there were more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S.
- Men get breast cancer and about 1,500 men in the U.S. are diagnosed with it each year.
- For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.
To show support for the cause, the victims, the survivors, and those who have any experiences with the disease-- We are encouraging you to stop by at Oliver Hall to sign our Think Pink poster.
This poster will be displayed in Oliver Hall throughout the month of October and will be a reminder to everyone that they aren't alone.
Hope to see you there!!
