Breast Cancer Awareness
Nearly 300,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and one in eight women in America will be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetimes. We have made enormous progress in our decades-long fight against cancer - discovering new prevention and early-detection measures and exploring medicines and therapies to extend and save lives. Despite these advancements, a breast cancer diagnosis is not only frightening but also a doorway into a confusing world of appointments, procedures, and expenses. While facing months of grueling treatments, breast cancer patients and their families are flooded with a bewildering sense of emotions as they courageously fight this horrific disease.
We paid tribute to the brave men and women of Tunica County that have fought, are currently fighting, that will one day fight, and those that lost their battle to the horrific disease known as cancer on Friday with a float in honor of the courageous people and their fights against cancer during the Rosa Fort Homecoming Parade.
