Statistics are scary. I don’t know about you, but seeing this makes me want to stick my head in the sand.
But I know I can’t.
Both of my grandmothers had breast cancer. So did my mother-in-law. With my mother-in-law, awareness and early intervention were critical, and she is cancer-free today.
We are designating Thursday, October 19, as our “Pink Day at the J Open House” to create awareness and support for those whose lives have been turned upside down by breast cancer. Please see Ellen or Marjorie to get a complimentary “Pink Pass” for your friends to join you for a workout or other activities going on that day–including a health and wellness fair and a lecture given by the Medical Director of the Center for Breast Health from Good Samaritan Hospital.
We are supporting Breast Cancer Awareness all month long by teaming up with I Support the Girls to collect NEW bras/sports bras (all sizes), maxipads and tampons. Please look for collection bins around the JCC.
