McWane Ductile-NJ (MDNJ) Team Hangs Pink Ribbons in Support of Breast Cancer Awareness
October 8, 2015
Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Most of us know someone or know of someone who has battled breast cancer and it is a battle. About 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Sadly, about 40,290 women in the U.S. are expected to die from breast cancer in 2015.
To help raise awareness about breast cancer, the MDNJ team worked with a Cancer Support Group in Lehigh Valley to hang pink ribbons along the fences outside of the MDNJ.
If you don’t know the symptoms and signs of breast cancer, we would encourage you to find out what they are and any time you discover an abnormality, investigate it immediately with a healthcare professional. As with all types of cancer, early detection is critical.
