There's nothing quite like the unwavering support of our remarkable #GirlGang. Throughout this October, we've had the opportunity to donate a $10,000 worth of cozy pink sweatshirts, a gesture intended to uplift and inspire women battling cancer, especially those undergoing challenging chemotherapy treatments.
As our team came together to handwrite heartfelt messages, it became abundantly clear how deeply each of our lives had been affected by breast cancer. Whether through a close family member or a cherished friend, we all had personal connections to this fight. Stepping into The Intermountain Cancer Center at McKay-Dee Hospital, we were profoundly moved by the overwhelming gratitude. The nurses, were so excited to share these comforting sweatshirts with their patients.
Witnessing the strength and resilience of cancer survivors at Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital has been an incredibly humbling experience for us. These remarkable individuals, who have faced adversity head-on, are a testament to the power of the human spirit. Their determination, optimism, and unbreakable bonds of support within their own communities have left a mark on our hearts. It's a reminder that in the face of adversity, we can not only endure but also emerge stronger and more united than ever before. As we continue our journey alongside these brave survivors, their stories serve as a constant source of inspiration for us all.
During this month of Breast Cancer Awareness, Nani is reminding women everywhere to focus on their health and to get regular check-ups. Breast cancer is the most common cancer found in women. In fact, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There are 25 million breast cancer survivors in the US today.
