Community comes first at The Central Jersey Blood Center. In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness month this October, CJBC is teaming up with the community in an effort to promote awareness, raise funds, and find a cure for breast cancer.

 

According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide and claims the lives of hundreds of thousands of women each year.

 

Thankfully, breast cancer death rates have been declining since 1990 and millions of women are surviving the disease due to increased awareness, improved treatment options, as well as screening and early detection. Although there have been great strides to fight breast cancer, there’s still a lot of work to do.

 

Much like national breast cancer organizations, CJBC is committed to joining the fight to save a life. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, CJBC’s community of blood donors and supporters are encouraged to make a donation to “the wall of hope”—all of the money collected will be donated to the American Cancer Society. CJBC will match a portion of these donations to support ACS’s efforts to raise awareness and fund breast cancer research.

 

In addition, this year a team of volunteers from our donor centers in Shrewsbury, Toms River and Howell will be gathering on Sunday, October 18th in Point Pleasant to participate in The American Cancer Society’s annual “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk. The event is organized nationwide and so far more than 8 million people have walked for this caused and raised nearly $460 million! If you’d like more information about this event and if you are interested in joining the CJBC team or making a donation, please click here.

 

This month, give a pint for pink at any of our three convenient locations and join us in the fight to save a life.
