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.”

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