What is breast cancer? Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of the breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it, too

As of February 2008, the Pink SOCS Foundation Inc.  officially became a 501(c)(3) public charity, but we started  raising money for cancer several years earlier.  In 2005, a  small group of us raised our first dollars as part of the Avon  Walk for Breast Cancer. It began as an attempt to actively  fight back.  At that point, 4 of our 9 sisters had already  received a cancer diagnosis. Our family is large, with 34  grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren, and ever  expanding. To date, we have experienced the despair of  relapse - more than once, as well as the sadness of loss  when our father and sisters succumbed to the disease.  Throughout our journey, we’ve had the good fortune to be  able to count on our family for support, but we also had the  sad realization that cancer is a significant financial burden –  even for those of us that are insured. It is our hope that the  Pink SOCS Foundation Inc. will be able to assist those  families who are in need of financial  support as a result of  any type of cancer, because we know first hand that  diagnosis is stressful enough, without the added concern of  monetary resources.   “Our mission is to improve the lives of families in our  communities that have been affected by breast cancer and  also all other forms of cancer. We raise money by holding  charity functions, and directly donating these funds to  families in need that have been affected by cancer.  Donations are also given as scholarships to children who  have family members affected by cancer.”

Research has shown  that women who have  2 to 5 alcoholic drinks  daily have a higher  risk of breast cancer  than women who  drink only 1 drink a  day or not at all.
