October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Stimson teachers and staff rallied their support to help provide mammograms, education, and support services to women in need. This annual campaign, to increase awareness of the disease, has made a lot of progress but still has a long way to go and needs your help!

“While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.” Says the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) on their website: http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org

NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need.  This mission includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.

Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.

Bravo Stimson teachers and staff!
