Supporting those who are in the fight by NEVER GIVING UP HOPE...
According to the U.S. breast cancer statistics, about 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. In this year alone, an estimated 266,120 new cases will be diagnosed, and about 40,920 women are expected to succumb to the disease. The numbers are frightening, and for those who are suffering with breast cancer, and the ones closest to them, it can feel daunting. But there is hope! Decreases in numbers have happened due to advances in treatments, earlier detection through screenings, and increased awareness!
Most people know someone who is fighting breast cancer, and the affects of treatments are not only emotionally difficult, but physically damaging as well. You might be wondering how you can support them, sometimes it's hard to know what to do. At F.H. Furr, we're raising awareness by giving away gift cards to Bluepoint Wellness and Spa!
Nominate a survivor, or a loved one who is currently fighting breast cancer and enter them to win a massage or cleansing facial from Bluepoint Wellness and Spa!
It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so show your support and help us raise awareness for breast cancer!
Here are some Survivor stories that prove just how strong the women in our lives can be:
Growing up, it was just my Mom and I. She wasn't only my Mom, she was my best friend. When she was diagnosed with Ductal Carcinoma in 2003 - it shattered my world. After having beat it twice now, she is one of the strongest women I know." -- L. C.,Client In Leesburg, VA
"When my Mom was diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer, we found out she had one of the most rare types in the world. I was scared beyond belief and didn't know what to do. But I had to keep a brave face for her, because I could tell she was scared too. My family made sure she had an endless supply of hats to get through her chemo and radiation and we even joked that she finally had tattoos like her kids, from her radiation markings. She is now over 3 years cancer-free and we count every single family get-together as a blessing." -- M. G., Client In Fairfax, VA
"My mother in law has fought breast cancer for nearly 10 years. She's gone through phases where we thought we'd lose her, to times when doctors saw miraculous remission. She has fought for life and her family all the way through. This is not an easy road, and we know that it will likely be an ongoing battle for the rest of her life, but she says tells us that this life is worth the fight! We're so proud of her and I think she's the most incredible, strong woman I know." --L. G. Client in Warrenton, VA
