Pink October

Published by | October 1, 2017

Why is our logo suddenly pink?

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and a great time to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.

“I like to think of Brooklyn Bridge Realty as a family, in our family of about 15, five of us have had breast cancer touch us: two moms, two spouses, and one niece. All of us have had a friend affected. Our statistics have led us to try and bring awareness to understanding and, perhaps, inspiring donations to the cause. Thank you.” – Angela Ruggiero

The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.
Seemingly appearing everywhere each October, the color pink is a visual reminder to breast cancer patients and survivors that they are not alone.
An estimated one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. It is second only to lung cancer as the leading cause of cancer death in women. The organization also estimates there are more than 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. For many patients and survivors, tapping into that community provides a source of strength during difficult times. At no point is that community more visible than during October, which is national Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Please help finish the fight against breast cancer by raising funds for and walking with any organization you prefer. It would be great to join more than one million people each year who are helping to end breast cancer.

Think about giving back and signing up or fundraising, and participating in one of the noncompetitive, three- to five-mile walks, you will help be there for everyone in every community touched by breast cancer. You will help those who are currently dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis, those who may face a diagnosis in the future, and those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether thanks to education and prevention..

Here are a few organizations that you may want to participate with:

Race for the Cure

Cancer Schmancer

American Cancer Society

If you’re interested in being active with ACS, here’s there Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

Here’s some important research on Why Black Women Are More Likely to Die of Breast Cancer.
