Looking back on Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We asked, “Why is Breast Cancer Awareness Important to You?”

In one way or another, everyone is impacted by breast cancer. And every October we get to stop and reflect on the impact that cancer has made on our lives and focus our efforts on changing things for the future. In an effort to raise awareness and show our support for the millions of women affected by breast cancer each year, Drips teammates shared their personal stories and to keep the awareness going beyond October, we’re sharing them with you.

One in eight women develops breast cancer at some point in their lives. 

This startling statistic is exactly why we wear pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And Drips is no exception. 

Our team all has their own personal stories that they were willing to share in an effort to raise awareness and to build a stronger sense of community within our four walls. 

All of our team members are proudly wearing custom Drips Breast Cancer Awareness pins and t-shirts around the office as they proudly share their personal experiences with one another, and you, our followers.

Let’s start with a few words from our CEO, A.C. Evans:

Even if breast cancer hasn’t affected you personally or one of your family members, the ripple effect it has can be felt universally:

Our Continuity Specialist, Maria Varonis says:

It’s amazing to see how much cancer indirectly has impacted these individuals even if they have not experienced it firsthand in their lives. No one is immune to the rippling effect cancer has on a community of people. 

According to BreastCancer.org, in 2019, an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are predicted to be diagnosed in American women. And many of our staff members have experienced very personal journeys they were willing to share in an effort to spread awareness this month and all year long:
