We are nine days away from the Komen Triangle Race for the Cure®! On Saturday, June 13th, the streets surrounding Meredith College will be covered in a sea of pink as far as the eye can see! Survivors, those receiving treatment, families and supporters will walk together to help raise money locally for funding breast cancer detection, support and educational awareness in Central and Eastern North Carolina.
Linda Trevor & Company is proud to once again to participate in this worthy event.
We Race Because…
- One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
- Every minute, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer.
- Breast cancer knows no boundaries- be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. Yes, men to are also vulnerable to this disease!
- We continue to Race because at the current rate, 13 million breast cancer deaths around the world will occur in the next 25 years.
But, when you participate and fund raise for the Race, we fight these statistics together. In 1980, the 5-year relative survival rate for women diagnosed with early stage breast cancer (cancer confined to the breast) was about 74 percent. Today, that number is 99 percent! Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer – transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors. This progress was made with your continued support and together we can reach our vision of a world without breast cancer.
We’ll keep you updated on our progress!
