According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lives – some 220,000 women each year. But there is hope. Out of the 222,000 women diagnosed, as many as 140,000 will survive, but all these women need your love and support.
The Mlaker family, like so many families, is deeply affected by breast cancer. My aunt, Becky, is currently battling stage 4 breast cancer, and this bus is in honor of her. It is also in memory of my grandmother, Jackie, and to honor and support all women who are affected by breast cancer. We all know someone who has been affected by this disease and how overwhelming it can be.
