Everybody knows that October is breast cancer awareness month. With pink ribbons filling up local businesses and plastering social media boards, breast cancer awareness month is a worldwide effort to raise awareness and funds to support women, and occasionally men, with breast cancer.
Did you know?
- Early detection can save lives & breasts
- Nearly 85% of breast cancer cases are found in women with no family history of the disease
- Raising breast cancer awareness saves an average of 40 lives per year
- Breast cancer can affect women of all ages
With breast cancer affecting about 1 in 8 women in the United States, it’s important to foster an environment of knowledge and understanding of the disease–which is why we are proud to do our part to raise awareness through our October breast cancer awareness fundraiser!
This October MJ Tax Services & More, MJ Realty Group, MJ Capital Funding, and Big Leagues teamed up with Dr. Grover, Radiology Specialist at WiinHealth Women’s Imaging & Interventions, and Angela Taylor (Breast Cancer Survivor/Founder of Artfull Angels) to raise breast cancer awareness!
All funds accrued were put toward providing free financial support for screening mammography, diagnostic breast imaging, and breast cancer care for the uninsured and underserved women in Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
By doing what we can to contribute to the cause, it’s our goal to normalize breast cancer screenings for all women and increase the rate of early detection. By making screenings accessible for women of all financial backgrounds and coverage scenarios, it’s our intention to help women detect breast cancer early on, and save lives!
In honor of Naidaly Pizzaro, the late daughter of a senior employee at MJ Tax Services & More, the October breast cancer fundraiser rose a total of $7000.00 for the cause! Come join us next year or contact us today to learn more about the various organizations that you can contribute to that help make breast cancer screenings accessible to women of all ages and backgrounds!
