‘Paint the Lake Pink Walk’ Honors Survivors, Thrivers, and Previvors While Empowering Action For Early Detection in the Breast Cancer Battle.
LAKE ZURICH, Ill., Sept. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in women. We all know someone who has been, or will be, impacted. It might be a family member, friend, neighbor, or coworker.
Why do we walk? To honor the people in our lives who have been impacted, and to help women find their breast cancer earlier by moving from awareness to action.
We walk for progress. Breast density can hinder the diagnosis of breast cancer. The earlier the diagnosis, the better the chances of survival. Most women don’t know their breast density and are not getting the essential additional screening they need. The denser the breasts, the higher the risk of breast cancer. At My Density Matters, we empower women to know their density and take appropriate action.
We walk for you. Do you have dense breasts? Are you getting the additional screening you need? If not, we walk for you.
We walk for us. Approximately 43,000 women die each year from breast cancer, many whose cancers were missed. We must find breast cancer earlier while it is still curable.
We will walk for progress, for you, for us, or in honor of someone who has been diagnosed. Who will you walk for, or make a donation in honor of?
