October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

In honor of Breast Cancer awareness month, President Barack Obama issued a Presidential Proclamation calling for solidarity in the fight to eradicate this dreadful disease:

“This month, pink ribbons will be displayed around our country, adorning jackets and public spaces alike. A sign of solidarity, these ribbons remind us of our commitment to preventing and treating breast cancer, and to supporting those courageously battling this disease. Countless Americans will participate in events to raise awareness alongside survivors and their families, working together to support research that will save lives. …”
