The fight to end breast cancer starts with a single step. Take that step with us at our inaugural American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Westfield, MA, this October 6. Just a few hours of your time at this non-competitive, 6K walk will help save lives.
Making Strides is an opportunity for people of all ages to unite against a disease that affects 1 in 8 women. Some participants are recently diagnosed. Some are still in treatment. Some are years past their diagnoses. Many more are husbands, sisters, wives, parents, children, grandchildren, and friends of someone who has heard those words: "You have breast cancer."
SIGN UP today to walk in honor or memory of a loved one, and to raise awareness and funds to help the American Cancer Society continue fighting the disease with cutting-edge research, information and services, and access to mammograms.
Why Making Strides and not some other breast cancer walk? Because the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight against breast cancer. 1 of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to us for help and support, such as rides to treatment, free lodging when treatments are far from home, and classes to help with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment. American Cancer Society-funded research has led to mammography, discovery of the breast cancer genes, and drugs such as tamoxifen and Herceptin. 46 of the researchers we funded early in their careers - when few others would - have gone on to win the Nobel Prize.
100 years of saving lives Today, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day that would have otherwise been lost to cancer. We won't stop until we finish the fight.
