Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.

Description

But the good news is that, thanks in part to the efforts of the American Cancer Society and money raised through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events, breast cancer incidence rates have been declining since 2000 and breast cancer deaths have been declining since 1989. Early detection has played a key role in the dramatic decrease.

The American Cancer Society treats survivors like family. They celebrate every victory and fight for a cure together. I was able to help remotely which I appreciated.
