Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

Woodinville Fire & Rescue Cares Enough to Wear Pink

Breast cancer is still the second leading cause of cancer death in women.

Real Men Wear Pink was created to give men a greater presence in the fight against breast cancer.

Other risks include obesity, using hormone replacement therapy, taking birth control pills, drinking alcohol, not having children or having your first child after age 35.

Think of your Mom, sisters, daughters, nieces, grandmothers, girlfriends - all the females in your life - then imagine at least one of them developing breast cancer.

Attendees can enjoy a mocktail (a cocktail with no alcohol), a manicure, tour educational displays and the Breast Center, schedule a mammogram and speak with breast specialists.

According to the Canadian Breast Cancer website, fewer Canadian women are dying from breast cancer today than in the past.

In recent years, there's been an explosion of life-saving treatment advances against breast cancer, which include, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Money raised from the event goes toward educating women about the importance of early detection and prevention and raising money to fund research and support programs to further the progress against the disease.
