About 192,200 American women will develop breast cancer this year, and of those, about 40,200 will die from the disease. When you consider how many people live in the US (about 292 million), that original statistic may seem small. But when you know one, or two, or three, or eight women who have contracted this devastating disease, that statistic seems overwhelming.
On Sunday, October 26, I’ll be participating in a 5-mile non-competitive Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Golden Gate Park. This walk is as much about raising awareness as it is about raising funds. I encourage you to check out this link, learn a few facts, make a donation, or sign up to walk (no fundraising necessary).
