Plastic Surgeons, Tallahassee Community Unite to Fight Breast Cancer
The fight against cancer has been joined by local plastic surgeons. Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic will be sponsoring the Making Strides Walk on Oct. 20 as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Tallahassee, FL (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic has announced that it is sponsoring the 2013 Making Strides Walk occurring Sunday, October 20th in Southwood Town Center. The event, hosted by the American Cancer Society, seeks to raise awareness and funds to help breast cancer patients and survivors, as well as fund research initiatives into more effective treatment options.
Participation in the Making Strides Walk is the latest of the clinic’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month activities in Tallahassee. Breast augmentation procedures performed at the clinic are commonly used to help cancer patients and survivors either during or after treatment.
“According to the American Cancer Society, 12% of American women will develop invasive breast cancer at some point during their life,” the Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic said. “But it’s about more than statistics. The personal impact that breast cancer makes on a patient is something we see every day as plastic surgeons. Tallahassee cancer patients and survivors have our full and unwavering support, and we are proud to walk alongside them for a cancer-free future.”
The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk began in 1984 in Boston thanks to the efforts of cancer survivor Margery Gould Rath. In 1993, the event was officially adopted by the American Cancer Society as an annual awareness-raising event, and since then, it has spread to almost 300 communities across the United States. Last year, one million walkers participated in the event, raising a $68 million for research and preventative services.
