Making Strides Against Breast Cancer: ABC7NY asks you to join us, and walk!

The American Cancer Society believes that ALL people deserve a fair and just opportunity to live a longer, healthier life free from breast cancer. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer celebrates survivors and thrivers, and raises funds for lifesaving breast cancer research, advocacy, programs, and services.

Thanks in large part to decades of work and the dollars you help the American Cancer Society raise, a breast cancer diagnosis does not come without hope, and the breast cancer journey is not one that has to be traveled alone. The American Cancer Society couldn’t do all it does work to save lives, provide free lodging, answer your calls 24 hours a day,/7 days a week/365 days a year, and fund groundbreaking research, without the support of the many sponsors who have joined with us on this mission to end breast cancer.

Cancer is a disease that affects everyone, but it doesn’t affect everyone equally. Factors like racism, discrimination, poverty, lack of access to healthy and affordable food, and geographical location all impact a person’s ability to prevent, find, treat, and survive cancer.

We can’t end breast cancer alone. We can’t end breast cancer with just hope. We can’t end breast cancer just by walking. We need you to help end breast cancer by taking action!
