Going PINK for October!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that 1 out of 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime? It's not just women but men also that develop breast cancer. When you look around and see how many people you know, that is a scary statistic. With early detection and better awareness this statistic has dropped over the past few years.
Here at EXIT Midstate Realty breast cancer hits very close to our hearts. One of my grandmas and one aunt had survived their breast cancer diagnosis. Alissa Prentice (co-owner of EXIT Midstate Realty) lost her mother to what started out as breast cancer. There are over 3.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Let's help raise that number.
There are many types of cancer but for October we focus on breast cancer which is the most common cancer in American women. We hope that you are all doing your self-examinations and/or scheduling your mammograms. Mammograms have come a long way in the last few years but the fight starts at home. Below are some great organizations whether you are looking to help by donating or to register for a virtual walk.
We are excited and happy to join the fight against breast cancer! We at EXIT Midstate Realty will donate $1, for every like and share of our Facebook post from now until Friday, to the Susan G Komen for all the women in our lives who are fighting or have lost their battle with breast cancer. You are never far from our hearts and thoughts.
