October isNational Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please join us as we pay tribute to breast cancer survivors and remember those who lost their battle with this devastating disease. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer. More than 3,000 black women are taking their place in breast cancer research. They joined the Sister Study to help discover why some women are diagnosed with the breast cancer but others are not. Compared to what their sisters went through while fighting breast cancer, women who have joined the Sister Study say that giving a few hours of their time to help find the causes is a small sacrifice with potentially huge benefits! We need answers. October is the perfect month to honor your sister! If you are a woman between the ages of 35 and 74 years oldand you have never had breast cancer yourselfand you live in the U.S. or Puerto Rico and your sister (living, deceased), related to you by blood, had breast cancer Join the Sister Study TODAY! Don't forget to call 1- 877- 4SISTER to complete the enrollment process. Help find the causes. Be sure to include the Sister Study in any breast cancer-related activities happening in your area. Call today for free materials that you can share with women in your community. Help encourage black women to step up in this fight against breast cancer!
