Posted on September 21, 2012 by Amazing Capes
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month... so lets gather our resources and help push for a cure! Since our PINK Amazing Capes are still anxiously waiting for production- please donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation today or find a local walk or run to participate in within your community! You can make a donation in honor or memory of a loved one, and know that BCRF directs 91 cents of every dollar spent towards research and awareness programs. With an estimated 1.5 million cases of breast cancer in the world per year, every penny is a worthwhile investment towards finding a cure. Show your appreciation this October for all the strong women in our lives!
Read President Obama's proclamation that shows his support towards women in this fight for a cure; he says, “we honor those we have lost, lend our strength to those who carry on the fight, and pledge to educate ourselves and our loved ones about this tragic disease.” Please follow his call for all citizens to join in activities that will increase awareness of what Americans can do to prevent breast cancer.
