That’s all the happy exciting news, but the truth is that breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. About 1 in 8 women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. The American Cancer Society estimates that 232,340 new cases will be diagnosed in women in 2013.
My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor, and growing up, my mother (blogger at Sidewalk Shoes) has gone through several serious breast cancer scares. I love my family, but I’m glad I’m adopted if those are my medical dispositions (too early to joke about it?). For these strong women and role models in my life, I’m so excited to participate in Cure on the Catwalk!
