Stepping it up and Running Fast for a CURE” Breast Cancer Awareness walk on Oct. 18
Breast cancer is a disease that has had a profound impact on survivors, their families and the public. Recognizing that the need for support, education and care extends beyond medical intervention for those diagnosed with the disease, a group of survivors who experienced first-hand the gap that exists for survivors and their families, came together in 2011 to establish Angels Surviving Cancer, Inc. (Angels) –a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to enlighten, educate and address real needs for those affected by breast cancer. Angels is committed to educating the public on the importance of assisting breast cancer survivors with all of their needs—be it financial, spiritual and emotional support–thereby minimizing depression, anxiety, improving their moods and overall self-image. Angels provide those facing cancer with a much-needed sense of control over their situation, by assisting them with maintaining their quality of life and developing coping mechanisms in the face of cancer. Instead of using a clinical approach, Angels are committed to a grassroots effort that fosters personal attention and provides care to both the patient and their families.
This year’s Stepping it up and Running Fast for a CURE” Breast Cancer Awareness walk on Oct. 18 is designed to educate and encourage, building self-esteem and faith. The primary message for women, who are experiencing the many challenges that this disease presents, is that “No matter what you are going through, someone else has been there and survived and so will you!
A.S.C. strives to accomplish a great deal in educating the underserved community, and there’s so much more to be done. The proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit women going through breast cancer. Our CARE program (Cancer Awareness Resource Encouragement) provides services to women facing financial challenges. As a Survivor, this program provides resources referrals of financial assistance. In order to continue the support of these women, we need help from the people who care about the quality of life and are willing to support us in this endeavor.
