Memphis Goodwill “Pinks Out” for Breast Cancer Awareness
October is breast cancer awareness month and all of our stores showed their support by sporting pink this past weekend.
Did you know?
- About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
- In 2015, an estimated 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 60,290 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
- About 2,350 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2015. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
Memphis Goodwill is proud to stand with its employees, partners, donors, and shoppers as we attempt to bring awareness to this life threatening disease. To learn more about breast cancer and what you can do to reduce risk, visit the CDC’s Breast Cancer Information Site.
