According to the National Cancer Institute it is said that 12.4 percent of women born in the United States today will develop breast cancer at some time during their lives.  This past Saturday in Forest Park over 5,000 St. Louisans gathered together to raise over $171,868.86 for the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk to try and end the odds of that happening for good. Every year since 2012 MOLL Magazine has participated in Making Strides, the national event founded by Massachusetts cancer survivor Margery Gould Rath.

We are very thankful to all our donors this year which have helped us reach over $594.00 of our fundraising goal of $1,000.00. All donation proceeds go towards finishing the fight against breast cancer.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a celebration of survivorship- an occasion to express hope and our shared determination to make this breast cancer’s last century.

October is breast cancer awareness month. Learn more about Breast Cancer Prevention and Early Detection.
