FVSUNAA, Inc. In Memoriam "A Celebration of Life" Balloon Release Ceremony

The Fort Valley State University National Alumni Association, Inc. will be having "A Celebration of Life" with Balloon Release Ceremony on Friday, October 23, 2020, 5 p.m. EST, on the campus quadrangle of Fort Valley State University. We know that our Wildcats are missing homecoming this year. The clash of the football pads, roar of the Wildcats, the sound of the "Blue Machine Marching" Band, the smell of tailgating and the visual of Wildcat love spread throughout our students, alumni and fans. We understand that feeling. But, there is one thing that we're also missing and that is our fallen Wildcats. We've lost many of our students, young and older alumni not just this year, but the past few years. We have our elderly alumni that reside in living assisted housing that are suffering without visitation from both their families and Wildcat family. During this pandemic, we must be even more vigilant and thoughtful to reach out those alums that we may or may not know to speak life into them. For we, never know what any of our alumni or family member maybe going through.

We're asking our alumni to join us for a virtual balloon release to acknowledge those we've lost and those living in isolation during this pandemic. We hope that you will watch and release your own balloons at your residence in celebration of life of your fellow Wildcats. If you wish to join us on campus, we will be socially distance in this celebration. We hope that you will join us!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Together we can educate on the impact of this disease.

Did you know:

* In 2020, an estimated 276,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the U.S. as well as 48,530 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.

* 64% of breast cancer cases are diagnosed at a localized stage (there is no sign that the cancer has spread outside of the breast), for which the 5-year survival rate is 99%.

* This year, an estimated 42,170 women will die from breast cancer in the U.S.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Together we can educate on the impact of this disease.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Together we can educate on the impact of this disease.

Did you know?

Male breast cancer is very rare. Less than one percent of all breast cancer cases develop in men, and only one in a thousand men will ever be diagnosed with breast cancer.

Breast cancer in men is usually detected as a hard lump underneath the nipple and areola. Men carry a higher mortality than women do, primarily because awareness among men is less and they are less likely to assume a lump is breast cancer, which can cause a delay in seeking treatment.
