Clarksville, TN. — Almost everyone knows someone who has been affected by breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women in the United States, besides skin cancer, and it’s also one of the leading causes of cancer deaths among all women.
October is breast cancer awareness month, and while strides are being made in the fight against breast cancer (the occurrence of breast cancer in U.S. women decreased by 1.2 percent from 1999-2008 while the death rate among breast cancer patients declined by two percent during that same period), the members of St Bethlehem Little League Softball division are pitching in to aid in the fight against breast cancer.
Beginning on Monday October 3, St Bethlehem softball players, will be playing games on the complex of Civitan Park, in an effort to both raise awareness of this life-altering disease.
"This is a special event for our program," said Perras. "There have been so many lives that have been touched both directly and indirectly that we want to take the time to not only help raise awareness, but to also honor those who have survived along with the memories of those lost their battle against this disease."
