Breast Cancer hits Pop Culture





Australian pop singer Kylie Minougue has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Minougue is a 2004 Grammy winner and has postponed her Austrailian tour to undergo treatment. She will turn 37 on May 28.

In light of this unfortunate news (I am a huge fan of Kylie and her musical talents), I remembered that the National Race for the Cure is right around the corner.

On Saturday, June 4th, cancer survivors, victims, and the mass public like myself, will be participating in the race to fight breast cancer. The race started in 1990 and has been successfully aimed at spreading breast cancer awareness.

According to The National Breast Cancer Foundation, every 12 minutes a woman in America dies of breast cancer. My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor, and still lives to talk about her experience.

If you will be in the DC area the weekend of June 4, register for the Race for the Cure (you can do it online!) ~ and join the thousands of people who are racing to fight this deadly
disease!
