NMSU-A Celebrates Pink Week, October 10-15
According to the Susan G. Koman studies, about 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer will occur among women in the U.S. this year. (An estimated 39,840 will die.) Also, about 1,970 men will be diagnosed with an estimated 390 dying.
Monday, October 10th through Saturday, October 15th is “Pink Week.” During “Pink Week” we celebrate those who have survived breast cancer, support those who are currently fighting the disease, and remember those who have lost the battle. NMSU-A joins the “Pink Week” campaign because we believe that education is imperative for prevention and early diagnosis of breast cancer. Early diagnosis can mean the difference between surviving and becoming a statistic.
During “Pink Week” all NMSU-A students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to wear pink every day to show their support. On Saturday the 15th, the NMSU Aggies play the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” football game against the Idaho Vandals.
We at NMSU-A invite you to support this important cause with us and recognize those who have been touched with this disease. The goal is to eradicate this cancer; we can start with education.
