Why Breast Cancer Still Matters AFTER October



The Pinktober frenzy has settled like confetti, meanwhile 108 people die every day from breast cancer. For thousands of women and men affected by this disease, breast cancer is a harsh reality 365 days a year.  The ARMY OF WOMEN and The Dr Susan Love Research Foundation are here to issue a month long reminder that breast cancer still matters. Every day throughout November, their blog will post a new reason to continue the focus on finding the causes of breast cancer. As a proud member of the Army of Women bloggers I will help spread the word here.
