For the second year in a row, the Brace Shop is joining the global breast cancer movement by recognizing “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” for October and donating a portion of their online sales to the South Florida Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. The Brace Shop hopes that by providing financial support and creating awareness to this organization, we can one day find a cure for breast cancer.
As screening programs become more common, breast cancer is being found at its earlier stages, which means better success for treatment. Women should have a clinical breast exam at least every 3 years between the ages of 20 and 39 and every year starting at 40 (www.komensouthflorida.org).
Breast cancer is a disease in which cancer cells form in the tissues of the breast. This disease can affect people of all age groups. It may be a friend, a family member or even a co-worker who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. The 5-year survival rate for all women diagnosed with breast cancer is 89 percent. This means that 89 out of every 100 women with breast cancer will survive for at least five years (www.komensouthflorida.org). Hearing the words “breast cancer” doesn’t always mean an end. It can be the beginning of learning how to fight, getting the facts and finding hope.
During the month of October, please join us in helping to raise money to find a cure for breast cancer. “Our company fully supports the South Florida Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Finding a cure for breast cancer is an important medical issue for our world and future. The more we reach out and participate, the better our chances come to finding a cure. However you choose to get involved, know that everything you do makes a difference.” says Stephanie Bregman (Director of Community Involvement at the Brace Shop). For the entire month of October, a donation will be made on your behalf for your Brace Shop order. Click Here to start your purchase today and help someone tomorrow.
