Last year, more than an estimated 1.6 million new cases of breast cancer occurred worldwide. Every year, the month of October is designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This month is not only a time to celebrate those who have survived, but a time to raise awareness to others who may be at risk.
There has been great progress over the last 30 years in identifying risk factors for breast cancer. Although we have learned a lot, we still do not understand what causes breast cancer to develop at a certain time in a certain person. However, leading a healthy lifestyle can help lower your risk.
In 2009, JimRay Back and friends began SL’s first Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. To continue with tradition, JimRay is again joining in the fight against breast cancer and raising awareness in SL. If you are interested in joining the campaign, contact JimRay Back for information.
