Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month which you may not have realized except for the influx of pink merchandise wherever you go.  While it seems almost a commercialization of cancer, it’s important that people are aware of and understand that even with the millions of dollars raised so far, a cure for cancer has not been discovered.

Research is ongoing and treatments and standards of care evolve but the fact of the matter is, cancer can and does blur all races, ages, demographics and socioeconomic lines.  So if that means we buy a set of pink Rubbermaid mixing bowls to help the cause, so be it!  The money has to be raised and research needs to be funded!

Now go run!
