The Power of Pink

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

The National Cancer Institute estimates that 226,870 women and 2,190 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012.

The institute also estimates that 39,510 women and 410 men will die as a result of breast cancer.

Early detection is key to survival and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, observed annually in October, aims to remind everyone of the importance of breast self-exams and mammograms.

With early detection, the survival rate is 98 percent.

Throughout the month of October, the Times-Tribune will once again work to raise awareness about breast cancer as well as raise money to benefit a local group that helps cancer victims and their families.

Throughout October, the Times-Tribune’s awareness-raising efforts will include a series of stories about local people whose lives have been touched by this potentially fatal disease.

Included in Wednesday’s edition of the Times-Tribune will be a special breast cancer awareness poster that can be displayed to show support for cancer-fighting efforts. A portion of the proceeds paid by the poster’s sponsors will be given to the Tri-County Cancer Coalition, a cancer support group that serves Knox, Laurel and Whitley counties.

Look in future editions of the Times-Tribune for a notice when “Power of Pink” T-shirts will be available. Again, a portion of the proceeds raised from the T-shirt sales will go to a cancer support agency.
