“Mom’s With A Mission” Breast Cancer Prevention Weekly Tip

Week #1:   THE ROLE OF THE ENVIRONMENT

Fewer than 10 percent of breast cancers occur in women with a genetic predisposition to the disease. Even when all traditional risk factors—including genetic predisposition, reproductive history, diet, exercise and alcohol—are aggregated, more than half of U.S. breast cancer cases remain unexplained.  The Breast Cancer Fund (BCF) believes that environmental exposures to toxic chemicals and radiation are increasing breast cancer risk. We need to get people talking about breast cancer prevention and reducing these environmental exposures. Visit and direct your friends to www.breastcancerfund.org to learn more and get people talking!

Stroller Strides of North San Antonio will host a Lunafest to raise money and awareness for The Breast Cancer Fund and a local women’s non-profit organization.  Check back for  more details.
