Breast Cancer Awareness Month
By Brian Lafferty
October 13, 2011 (San Diego) – When I was little I would have an occasional paralyzing fear that my mom and dad were going to die too soon. I don’t know why I had this fear. All I know is it would keep me up at night and it made me cry.
OCTOBER 18, 2009 (La Mesa) – Want to save money on some early holiday shopping--and help raise money for breast cancer patients and their families?
October is the 25th Anniversary of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. On Saturday, October 24th, Grossmont Center is offering an all-day “Power Shop For A Cure” from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. 100% of proceeds from this one-day shopping and dining discount event will benefit Sharp Grossmont Hospital’s Breast Health Navigator Program, which provides personalized information and guidance for breast cancer patients and their families. A $20 donation is required. In addition to discounts from more than 30 mall participants, event festivities include a one-mile Wake-Up and Walk with local TV personality Carol LeBeau, free breakfast at Panera Bread, event t-shirt, tote bag, health fair and more.
