LA Health Services (DHS) supports the voluntary participation in the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk on October 21 at the Citadel Outlets in Commerce. According to the American Cancer Society, the average risk of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer sometime in her life is about 13%. This means there is a 1 in 8 chance a woman will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer. It is a powerful experience to walk with survivors of breast cancer and their friends and families. Your support goes towards breast cancer research, early detection, prevention, community education and health care services for survivors. The American Cancer Society offers a breadth of supportive services to women who need it. They have access to support groups, transportation, lodging and information to help them make informed decisions.

Walking and donating support breast cancer prevention as well as survivors. Your donation touches the lives of everyone with a loved one affected by breast cancer. To register, join a team or make a donation, please go to:
