Support fight against breast cancer

Did you know that one out of every two women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support? You can help end breast cancer by participating in the society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraising walk at Cantigny Park in Wheaton on Oct. 21.

We're expecting that hundreds of participants will join our unified force that is one million strong around the country.

The Making Strides program is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, with walks in more than 270 communities that raise $60 million for the American Cancer Society each year to save lives from breast cancer. The dollars raised fund groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat and cure breast cancer, help ensure access to mammograms for women who need them, and provide free resources and support to patients, including transportation and lodging during treatment.

There is hope in the fight against breast cancer, but we must all do our part to beat this disease. Join us at Making Strides Against Breast Cancer on October 21, because together, we are making strides toward a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays. To get involved or for more information, contact the American Cancer Society at 630-932-1141 opt 3, or visit,
