Walk for Breast Cancer
by Debbie Locke
Avon Walk for Breast Cancer is hosting a fundraiser at Chevy's in Newark. Breast cancer remains the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women worldwide, and in the US there is a new diagnosis every three minutes. Through last year the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade has raised and awarded more than $400,000,000 worldwide for access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer, with a focus on the medically underserved.
Funding supports five areas: awareness and education; screening and diagnosis; access to treatment; support services; and scientific research. Beneficiaries range from leading cancer centers to community-based non-profit breast health programs, creating a powerful international network of research, medical, social service and community-based organizations focused on defeating breast cancer and ensuring access to care. Chevy's will donate 20 percent of your bill to the fundraiser. You must bring this flyer available at www.scottanddebbie.com/chevys.
