October was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an entire month dedicated to spreading awareness about this disease that impacts millions of women worldwide. The objective of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is to create more awareness and to raise money in order to search for a cure and new ways of effective treatment.

Freshman Connor McCruden said, “I believe that National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is important because it is a time to support those affected by it either directly or indirectly, whether it be their own personal battle or a loved one going through the ordeal alongside the person. Speaking personally, it’s also an emotional time for those who have had a loved one overcome breast cancer.”

Freshman Abby Beam said, “Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October, is a positive thing because it acknowledges this disease that impacts so many women along with their families, around the world, regardless of age, race, gender, and class.”
