I feel it's fair to say that most of us have had our lives impacted by the quick stabbing knife known as cancer. It is a disease that does not discriminate.
As October is a month that organizations around the world take a stand against breast cancer and we are joining the fight.
One in EIGHT women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their lifetime.
This statistic saddens me in so many ways. Not only is this an incredibly high number, but I think about the fact that that statistic is based only on the women who have been tested. Often people are denied screenings due to age, gender or healthcare coverage.
Barbells for Boobs is an organization that is dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer, with an emphasis on women under the age of 40 and men. They believe that everyone has a RIGHT to know if they are living with breast cancer. They also encourage an improved quality of life post diagnosis through fitness.
Through the months of September and October we are creating a team at CFL and fundraising to support this foundation. You can donate directly through this link or preferably, make an account and reach out to your friends and family. You can earn rewards as you hit fundraising milestones, but to be honest, the greatest prize is being able to help the individuals and families taking on this overwhelming battle.
Please take time to create an account, join our team and donate to help take back
the power from breast cancer.
