Think Pink – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
In a sport dominated by females, October permeates cheerleading with pink poms, bows, and accessories in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. While these pops of color are fun changes from school uniforms, the month itself sits heavy with the seriousness of the disease.
According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the second most common cancer in American women after skin cancers – one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her life.
So remember the 3.1+ million survivors during October – and THANK YOU for showing them your support!
