Making Strides Against Breast Cancer – Breast Cancer Walks 2021

October is breast cancer awareness month and Palo Verde Cancer Specialists wants to encourage you to get involved with a walk for breast cancer this month. October should be a month filled with awareness about breast cancer, education on how women can perform at-home breast exams and when to see a doctor if something is wrong, and to raise funds for breast cancer research, treatment, and a future cure. Our Scottsdale radiation oncology center is passionate about breast cancer awareness month and we want you to be as well!

What is Making Strides Against Breast Cancer?

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer involves a number of different events held by the American Cancer Society and their partners. The main goal of these events is to walk in honor of breast cancer survivors and caregivers, celebrate and honor those who have passed, educate the public about breast cancer prevention and detection, and raise funding to end breast cancer.

Walks occur all over the United States and participants can join as individuals or as teams. At Palo Verde Cancer Specialists, we encourage you to join as a team and have a fundraising goal to collectively work towards. Every little bit helps to get one step closer to a breast cancer cure. Additionally, you can volunteer at a breast cancer walk by being involved in the behind the scenes work like registration, logistics, and participant support.
