Napkinwizard.com Blog–Help Raise Breast Cancer Awareness this October

August 31, 2012

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among American women except for skin cancers. American Cancer Society statistics show that approximately one out of every eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer at some point during her lifetime. It is fatal far too often.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a health campaign organized by various breast cancer charities across the world, is held every October. It’s an excellent time for us all to help raise awareness and understanding of this disease.

Whether you are holding an official fundraising dinner for charity or just hosting a get-together in your own home to honor a friend or family member who is living with breast cancer, your guests will certainly understand the event’s significance when you decorate the table in pink. The pink ribbon has become an instantly-recognizable symbol of breast cancer awareness around the globe, and the color pink itself also symbolizes the movement.
