Follow-up on the 5k race for breast cancer awareness (by C.F.)

The annual 5k race for breast cancer was held on July 25. Although it was hot and humid, many courageous families and individuals participated in this worthy cause. According to the American Cancer Society the chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer is 1 in 8. The chance of dying from breast cancer is 1 in 35. Men also can develop breast cancer. About 1,900 men were diagnosed with the disease in 2009. The good news is that more people are surviving breast cancer thanks to early detection and better treatment options. There is more than two and half million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
