Each year, hundreds of thousands of people come together to participate in breast cancer walks and runs in cities across the U. Since the first breast cancer walks began in the s, they have become one of the most common ways for people to try to do something about breast cancer. As far back as the s, Breast Cancer Action members and other women affected by breast cancer have been asking how much of an impact these walks actually have in supporting women and saving their lives.
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among Georgia women, affecting 30 percent of women with cancer. It offers breast screenings and treatment using the latest techniques, technology, and research in a modern, patient-focused setting. But most women do not get these annual x-rays.
We have been at the forefront of the fight against breast cancer sincewhen the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade launched in the U. With the support of the Avon Foundation, we have renewed our global commitment to the cause with the launch of the Avon Breast Cancer Promise, a multi-year pledge educating women about breast health. The findings showed a knowledge gap amongst women globally about symptoms of breast cancer and how to lower the risk of developing the disease. Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women around the globe.
Funds raised are distributed to local, regional and national breast cancer organizations like The Rose. They share in our mission that every woman deserves quality breast health care regardless of her ability to pay. Hilda Martinez and her mother walked in the Avon 39 for the second year.

Now in its seventh year, the Avon Walk Houston — the first of eight Avon walks across the country — attracted more than 1, participants from 26 states and Washington, D. I was only 32 years old and knew that not only was I was going to fight for my life, but that I would help other people live through this awful disease.
The adrenaline rush has been pretty intense since then. People ask me all of the time, which is the best, and the truth for me is that each one has been great. The terrain and the environment are different, but this whole experience is about the people and the cause. There seems to be a bonding that goes on that is intrinsic with the event.
You may get many bills for just one procedure. For example, you may get a bill from each department in the hospital involved with your surgery such as the lab pathologysurgery and others. Even if your co-payment for a single bill is low, these costs add up.
The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, which launched inhas placed Avon at the forefront of the fight against breast cancer. The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade has awarded funding to beneficiaries ranging from leading cancer centers to community-based grassroots breast health programs to support breast cancer research and access to care.
