This October, you’ve probably seen that familiar influx of pink — from ribbons to football uniforms that bear the color proudly to fundraisers and awareness campaigns that help educate us, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is in full swing.
According to breastcancer.org, over 297,000 women and 2,800 men in the US will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer this year. The experience and effects of breast cancer impact families, communities, and workplaces – at RedSky, we keenly feel the importance of bringing awareness to this disease.
Our staff have walked with close friends and family through various stages of breast cancer, some having the joy of watching their loved ones receive successful treatment and some experiencing the loss and impact of lives lost.
When RedSky thinks of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we think of our mothers, sisters, and friends who have faced this difficult road with joy, courage, and strength. We dedicate this post to them and seek to continue raising awareness for breast cancer so that more women and men can recognize early signs and seek life-saving treatment.
