On October 1st President Barack Obama proclaimed October 2012 as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As part of Managing Attorney Jeffrey Feulner’s mission to give back to the community, the Men’s Divorce Law Firm will participate in events this month to honor those we have lost, support those who carry on the fight, and pledge to educate ourselves and others about breast cancer.
In 2009, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) celebrated its 25th anniversary. Since its inception, NBCAM has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on breast cancer. Today, NBCAM recognizes that although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. Through NBCAM we are dedicated to educating and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health by practicing regular self-breast exams to identify any changes, scheduling regular visits and annual mammograms with their healthcare provider, adhering to prescribed treatment and knowing the facts about recurrence.
The third Friday in October each year is National Mammography Day, first proclaimed by President Clinton in 1993. On this day, or throughout the month, women are encouraged to make a mammography appointment. This year National Mammography Day will be celebrated on October 19th.
The Men’s Divorce Law Firm will support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by participating in two community events this month: the Pretty in Pink Martini Party in College Park, Orlando on October 18th and the Komen Race for the Cure at the University of Central Florida, Orlando on October 21st. Please join the Men’s Divorce Law Firm at these and other community events to raise funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, to celebrate breast cancer survivors and to honor those who have lost their battle with the disease.
