What is breast cancer? Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of the breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it, too
A s   of   February   2008,   the   Pink   SOCS   Foundation   Inc.   officially   became   a 501(c)(3)   public   charity,   but   we   started   raising   money   for   cancer   several years   earlier.      In   2005,   a   small   group   of   us   raised   our   first   dollars   as   part of   the   Avon   Walk   for   Breast   Cancer.   It   began   as   an   attempt   to   actively fight   back.     At   that   point,   4   of   our   9   sisters   had   already   received   a   cancer diagnosis.    Our    family    is    large,    with    34    grandchildren    and    9    great grandchildren,   and   ever   expanding.   To   date,   we   have   experienced   the despair   of   relapse   -   more   than   once,   as   well   as   the   sadness   of   loss   when our father and sisters succumbed to the disease. T hroughout   our   journey,   we’ve   had   the   good   fortune   to   be   able   to   count on   our   family   for   support,   but   we   also   had   the   sad   realization   that   cancer is   a   significant   financial   burden   –   even   for   those   of   us   that   are   insured.   It is   our   hope   that   the   Pink   SOCS   Foundation   Inc.   will   be   able   to   assist those   families   who   are   in   need   of   financial      support   as   a   result   of   any   type of   cancer,   because   we   know   first   hand   that   diagnosis   is   stressful   enough, without the added concern of monetary resources.    O ur   mission   is   to   improve   the   lives   of   families   in   our   communities   that have   been   affected   by   breast   cancer   and   also   all   other   forms   of   cancer. We   raise   money   by   holding   charity   functions,   and   directly    donating   these funds   to   families   in   need   that   have   been   affected   by   cancer.   Donations are   also   given   as   scholarships   to   children   who   have   family   members affected by cancer.” With   your   support,   no   matter   how   small   or   how   large   we   can accomplish our mission.
