Breast Cancer Awareness Month: A Pink Spotlight on Our Health

October is designated Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month turns a pink spotlight on our health. For some of us, it’s a reminder to schedule a mammogram. For others, it’s a chance to that raises money for research or celebrates the survivors in our communities.

For those who have lost a loved one to breast cancer, we honor them with races, with luminaries, with moments of silence. The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Connecticut website lists ongoing and upcoming events throughout the state. You can also stay up-to-date on their Facebook page. Though Breast Cancer Awareness Month lasts only 31 days, we never forget.  

In Patch communities all over the country, we want to help you pay tribute to breast cancer survivors or your loved ones lost to breast cancer by publishing their photographs on Patch.com. You are welcome to share your stories of these special people with others in our online community. You can even submit video tributes of your loved one.

Email your photos and information to jenn.mcculloch@patch.com. If you would like to detail your story, you can also talk about your jourey in our '' section where Doreen Currie shared her journey battling a brain tumor.
