Many people around the world are using October as a time to reflect and bring awareness to Breast Cancer. According to breastcancer.org, about 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. We can all probably list five people we know who have had this evil disease at one point in their life. It is also the most common cancer among women and is the second leading cause of cancer deaths according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Several organizations are devoted to finding a cure for cancer including Breast Cancer Prevention Partners, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Cancer Research Institute, and the American Cancer Society, just to name a few.

Going back to the alarming 1 in 8 women statistic, we would like to highlight our very own Teresa Pulley, who is a breast cancer survivor. Teresa is the office manager at our Kentucky office and has been employed with Robinson since 2006. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 and announced she was cancer free in 2014. One charitable organization that Teresa says has helped her and her family tremendously from the time she was diagnosed is the American Cancer Society. “They provided much needed literature to keep me informed about what to expect, side effects, and local support groups,” said Teresa. She also mentioned that the Brown Cancer Center in Louisville, Kentucky has a section specifically for women who have lost (or will lose) their hair. “They provide free wigs, scarves, head wraps, and hats, as well as classes for other self-image issues such as make-up and clothing, which really helps with the mental aspect of dealing with cancer.” Teresa is proud to announce that today she is 4 ½ years cancer free!

Cancer, no matter the type, is an evil disease, so today and every day, we remember those who have been diagnosed, those who have survived, and those who have lost their battle.
