According to the Susan G. Komen website, over 3.8 million people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Of those diagnosed, breast cancer kills more than 42,000 people every year.
However, we are on the road to eradicating breast cancer. The American Cancer Society, in conjunction with Avon, state that breast cancer death rates have dropped 40% since 1989-saving 348,800 lives.
Together with the American Cancer Society, Corydon is committed to supporting and creating a world without breast cancer. On Friday October 11th, Corydon Converting sponsored Pink Tees to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The donations that the team collected were matched by the company. The total amount of $420 was sent to American Cancer Society.
