Lace up your shoes, cause it's time to use your feet to defeat Breast Cancer!
The need for breast cancer education and services remains high in our area. Not only is breast cancer the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women, Riverside and San Bernardino counties have some of the highest mortality rates for breast cancer in all of Southern California. Experts attribute this high mortality rate to late diagnosis, indicating a lack of knowledge about breast cancer and its signs and symptoms.
Our mission is clear – we need to raise awareness about breast cancer to save the lives of those we love. When breast cancer is detected early, the five-year relative survival rate is 98%. The Pink on Parade Walk, and its associated marketing campaign, will help raise awareness about breast health issues for both men and women in our area. By walking on October 20, building a team, and spreading the word you are directly impacting the health of our community and the hold breast cancer has on it.
Pink on Parade will also raise money for The Pink Ribbon Place, Riverside's first breast cancer resource center. The Pink Ribbon Place's goal is to improve the qaulity of life for those impacted by cancer, before, during and after treatemnt. All services offered at The Pink Ribbon Place are free of charge and include: counseling services, support groups, health and wellness programs, and breast prosthesis and wig bank. To find out more about The Pink Ribbon Place, visit thepinkribbonplace.org.
