THE STORY:

Why should we raise money for breast cancer? 

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. This deadly cancer is found mostly in women, but men can get it too. Among women, breast cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths, followed by lung cancer. Fortunately, breast cancer is very treatable if detected in its early stages. However, if the cancer starts to spread, treatment becomes more difficult.

National Breast Cancer Awareness month is important so people can recognize it and for so it can be detected early. Your donations go directly to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which funds programmatic work, scientific reports, advocacy for state and federal legislative solutions and public education about environmental risks and breast cancer.

Skateboarding is founded upon the principle of freedom and life. It is important we remember these values, and ensure that everyone gets a chance to live.
