What Does October Mean to You?
by: Eileen Howe Bird, Executive Director of To Life!
We have come to associate the color pink with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Come October, pink decorations, pink clothing, and references to breast cancer pop up all over. What does October mean to you? For many, it will signify a transition from a softer summer schedule to a busier calendar. Or maybe this is your reminder to schedule a mammogram or doctor’s appointment. For others it may mean starting or continuing a treatment regime. We shout from the rooftops the completion of treatment, receiving the news of being cancer free, and other significant milestones.
To Life! is committed to being a resource for those seeking information and connections as they progress through a breast cancer journey. Our programming and support service offerings continue to expand. We are keenly aware of the expanding population of survivors – right here in our community.
Let us be of service to you or someone you care about today. Sign up for the Women’s Health Conference or one of our two cooking classes in October and November. If you're in the Delmar area, stop by our office and browse our cookbook library, where you can find tons of recipes to help reduce risk and heal during and after treatment. Our website has been completely redone and includes a host of local resources. We are here for YOU throughout a cancer journey, October and always.
