Celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness

LMS Pink Ribbon Loop

 Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer risks, the value of screening and early detection, and treatment options available to women and men who are diagnosed with one of the many forms of breast cancer. More than 249,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with invasive breast cancer every year, and nearly 41,000 die from the disease.

Over the years, a loop of pink ribbon has come to symbolize breast cancer awareness, and today the image of a pink ribbon can be found emblazoned on thousands of products, from apparel to dishware to office supplies. But there's more to awareness than just wearing pink.

Lowndes Middle School has united for this worthy cause.  Thousands of woman are affected annually.  We are standing to support the brave women that were lost and are still battling with this deadly disease.  We celebrate the suvivors and release these balloons to pay tribute to those that were lost and for HOPE that a cure is found.
