This October, our staff chose a day to “Wear the Pink” to raise awareness for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Our associates and staff sported pink dresses, shirts, ties and blouses to show their support for loved ones and the larger cancer patient community.
We wore pink to honor our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, friends and other loved ones who battled breast cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that one in eight women will be diagnosed with some form of this disease. While non-Hispanic white women have the greatest risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer, the disease is more deadly in women of color. African American women are at 41 percent greater risk of dying from it than white women. In fact, according the American Cancer Society, African American women in Georgia had a 29.2 percent mortality rate from the disease in 2011-2015. Breast cancer is the leading cause of all cancer deaths for Latina women.
Thanks to scientific research, public education and more money to help patients, death rates from breast cancer have dropped 39 percent since 1989.
