Breast Cancer Awareness Month a source of inspiration and hope

Help us fill in our mosaic. Visit, share your
photo, and we’ll donate to breast cancer research in your name.
Messages of encouragement are widespread in October as the nation recognizes Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

For example, here are a few of the inspirational words shared on our Facebook page by women and men whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.

“I'm slogging through treatment for myself and my beautiful daughter. And I'm telling everyone so they go get checked!! Early detection, ladies; don't be afraid. Be in charge.”

“This past spring, I had a MRI to screen for breast cancer because my mammogram and subsequent ultrasounds showed an area of suspicion. Luckily I was blessed to be given the all clear and am thankful for my life and everyone in my grandson in this photo!”

“My mother-in-law has been a cancer survivor for 11 years!! She is an amazing woman.”

These words accompany pictures celebrating the strength and courage it takes to battle the disease. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’re compiling these photos into a mosaic, bringing together people with a common goal: standing up to breast cancer.

Whether you have a grandmother who passed away from the disease, a test showing you’re cancer free, or you’d simply like to recognize all the women in your life — we want to honor you and your loved ones by spreading awareness and raising funds for breast cancer research.
