October is recognized as the official Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Every year across the nation mothers, daughters, sisters, brothers, husbands, survivors and everyone in between participate in the Making Strides Breast Cancer walk, sponsored by The American Cancer Society. There are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States alone. On Saturday, October 12th the Making Strides Breast Cancer walk will take place in Orlando at Lake Eola Park at 9am.
Breast Cancer is something that is near and dear to my heart because I have family members that have fallen to this disease and some who have survived. Just from attending the walk alone I have met so many great women who have given their testimonies on what it was like for them as a patient, as a daughter, as a son, etc. Although it is a disease that takes many lives, awareness walks like these bring people together to fight the good fight and raise money for a cure.
