Breast Cancer Awareness in Wilkes-Barre, PA...Go Pink!!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with ADT Real Estate

I'm probably a bit late on the change, but I needed some technical learning for getting my ribbon to stick!! I have it right now, so I've gone pink too for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

While I don't know anyone with breast cancer, I do know plenty of people with cancer and I can see that it's a rough thing to go through. I have a lot of respect for anyone who's going through or has gone through the processes involved with this disease. May God bless them all!!

I looked up a couple of things that are happening in Pennsylvania for Breast Cancer Awareness. Check them out.

You can read about the Business and Professional Women Tunkhannock Local group, which will have it's first annual "Dinner of the Angels" to benefit the American Cancer Society and breast cancer research within Luzerne County. The dinner will be held Saturday, Oct. 20, at A Touch of Class, George Avenue, Wilkes-Barre. Check out the recent story in the Citizens Voice.

The Wilkes-Barre Penguins have also teamed up with the American Cancer Society to help bring more awareness to Breast Cancer as well. Check the story out here.

If you, like me, just don't know much about this disease but want to know, check out some of the great info provided at the following link, Understanding Breast Cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Take some time out of your busy schedule to find out more about it, then do something to help!!

 

Until next time...

Jason C and Jason S,

Yes, it'd be difficult confusing the two of you. I look forward to speaking with the two of you.
