Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (team Breast Buds)



Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has a new team, Breast Buds

Asheville Gynecology & Wellness is sponsoring a team for the upcoming Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Asheville on October 24th. Join our effort in whatever way you can. Here’s what you can do:

  • Join team Breast Buds and walk with us on the 24th of October.
  • Make a Donation through our team.
  • Direct others to our team Breast Buds page.

Why We Walk

There is no other disease that touches the lives of women around the world more than breast cancer. If a woman has not personally received the diagnosis of breast cancer, she surely knows someone who has experienced the diagnosis and undergone treatment. It is the strength and perseverance of women with breast cancer that is most inspiring to me. Participating in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Asheville is a wonderful way to express support for women and men with breast cancer.  I would love to see more strides being made not only in the understanding of the causes and treatments for this disease, but I also want to see strides being made in caring for women in the years following original treatment. 


Chiron Publications, publisher of Breast Cancer: A Soul Journey has joined team Breast Buds campaign by offering to donate $3.00 for every copy of Breast Cancer: A Soul Journey purchased through its website through the month of October. 

If your company would like to join this fundraising effort please go to the team Breast Buds page.
