Woman 2 Woman Breast Cancer Foundation hosts annual benefit
Mar 7, 2012
The Woman 2 Woman Breast Cancer Foundation (W2W) will host its annual benefit in Lauderdale Lakes, Florida, on the weekend of March 23. The event will include the Real Men Support Pink Celebrity Golf Tournament, featuring stars such as Brian McKnight and Matt Moore. The benefit will end with the Pink Diamond Gala, with some of the proceeds going to breast cancer research.
"This is our opportunity to salute the many women who have faced cancer with dignity and courage-under-fire," said Jacqueline Gray, founder and CEO of W2W. "By sharing their powerful stories, we hope to increase program support and help others not only survive, but also to thrive in spite of this terrible disease."
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during her lifetime. Not only is it the second most common form of cancer among women behind skin cancer, but it is the second leading cause of cancer-related death among women, following only lung cancer.
