Because cancer is a disease that affects everyone, but it does not affect everyone equally.
The American Cancer Society invites you, our dedicated Making Strides Against Breast Cancer participant to join us for the first statewide Virginia Breast Health Equity Summit, presented by Virginia Women’s Center & Dominion Imaging. While overall breast cancer mortality rates in the United States are dropping, not all populations are seeing the same decline. If we are to further reduce death from breast cancer and achieve our morality goal of reducing cancer deaths by 40% by 2035, we need to make sure everyone in Virginia has the ability to benefit from the advances in the prevention and treatment of Breast Cancer.
We will have expert speakers who will address breast health equity issues, American Cancer Society support services and breast cancer research in Virginia.
This summit will be held on Facebook via CBS6 on Thursday, October 29th at 12:30 pm.
You may RSVP online use the link below!

What Unites Us, Ignites Us!

We believe in a world without breast cancer. And we believe that one day we’ll be able to say we beat it. But to get there, it’s going to take all of us working together. Your energy, your commitment to this cause; it’s contagious. And that dedication, that emotion, pushes everyone forward to do even more for those with breast cancer. So join us at your local Making Strides event. We can’t do this without YOU.

Join the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at Mt. Trashmore in Virginia Beach to help create a world without breast cancer.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the 5K walk starts at 10 a.m.

Funds raised at this noncompetitive, family-friendly event enable the American Cancer Society to save lives from breast cancer by investing in groundbreaking research; providing free, comprehensive information and support to those touched by the disease; and helping people take steps to reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.
