Merritt Has Gone Pink!
You may have noticed something a little different about our social media pages today -- Merritt has gone pink! Throughout the month of October, Merritt will be supporting pink on our pages in honor of breast cancer awareness.
According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. They also state that when breast cancer is detect early, in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 100% -- 100%! That being said, early detection tests for breast cancer can and do save thousands of lives each year and it starts with education and awareness.
So let's keep this conversation going and talk to your loved ones, your colleagues and your friends today about their breast cancer health and getting their exams and mammograms scheduled.
We will be sharing articles, facts and tips all month long to help with this cause. You can also join Merritt in support of the Tyanna Foundation at their annual BreastFest event on October 17th at Power Plant Live.
