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
A s   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. T hroughout    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.    O ur   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.” With   your   support,   no   matter   how   small   or   how   large   we   can accomplish our mission.
