Breast Cancer Awareness Month Focusing On Early Detection

About 2,470 men are also expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year with 460 deaths.

Some of the region's restaurants have gone pink, donating a portion of proceeds to help the American Cancer Society beat breast cancer from October 6 through October 15. Today, walks are held more than 250 communities nationwide.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease and to help those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services.

Last weekend Zerorez sponsored and the 5K American Cancer Society walk in Salt Lake. Every year around 4,600 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and nearly 1,000 people will die of it. "At the event, communities embrace a bittersweet mix of goal - celebrating survivorship and paying meaningful tributes to loved ones lost".

Mr Balfour joined fellow parliamentarians in Holyrood to encourage people across Scotland to get involved and help support Breast Cancer Now's efforts to ensure that, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live.

Registration for the walk begins at 10 a.m. and the walk begins at noon on Sunday. There are no fees to register, though contributions and donations are greatly appreciated.

Manhattanville College is located at 2900 Purchase St, Purchase, NY.
