While showing my support at the Susan G. Komen 3 Day 60-mile race for the cure in Atlanta, I saw how passionate the participants were and couldn’t help but go home and learn more.
12% of women in the United States will develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetime, and the disease doesn’t discriminate. Celebrities such as Cynthia Nixon, Sheryl Crow, Kylie Minogue, and very recently Guilana Ranci have all been diagnosed.
Going public with her breast cancer diagnosis yesterday, Guiliana Rancic hopes she can inspire and perhaps educate ladies about the importance of regular breast exams. Like many women waiting on mammogram results the 36-year-old never in her “wildest dreams expected anything to be wrong.”
We all have mothers, sisters, aunts, and friends we care deeply about and news of breast cancer diagnosis would be devastating.
The Susan G. Komen 3-Day takes place in cities across America from Boston to San Diego. Designers such as Tory Burch and Ralph Lauren are donating proceeds from special pink products to breast cancer research and even professional football teams such as the Dallas Cowboys are showing support by wearing pink on their cleats, towels and wristbands.
Now it’s your turn, how will you join the fight?
