October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Organizations and Charities use this month to really step up their efforts in raising funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. We would like to let you know about one such effort that is especially relevant to the BHW community.
Judith A. Lese started her foundation following her own successful battle with breast cancer. Each year, her foundation holds the “Walk to Win”. Monies raised have provided equipment and support for the clinical trial programs and other services at the Sullivan Cetner for Breast Health at Sibley Memorial Hospital and research at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins — just to name a few.
This year the 9th Annual 5KWalk will be held on Sunday, October 16th 9am-12 noon (rain or shine)at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton Maryland.
