The Passionately Pink for the Cure is breast cancer awareness and fundraising program designed to raise money for cancer research, education and awareness and help discover a cure. The goal of the program is to bring an end to breast cancer altogether.
Preventing and detecting breast cancer early will help save more lives. Understand the lifestyle factors that may affect your risk of breast cancer and what you can do to stay healthy. Breast exams, mammograms and other screenings increase the chances of detecting breast cancer early, when they are most likely to be curable.
It’s time to get moving and help find cures for “Breast Cancer”. Do it for yourself, for the people you love, for the millions who need your support. Join the Passionately Pink ZUMBATHON® Charity Event Monday, October 21, 2013 from 6-8:00 p.m. at the Mesquite Recreation Center.
