Dig for the Cure is THIS Thursday, September 30th. Starting today we will be posting some "Did You Know?" facts and stats about breast cancer AND our faculty and staff will be wearing RETRO Dig for the Cure shirts or pink this week to bring awareness to breast cancer. We'd love for you to join us in wearing pink too! Comment on one of our posts with your picture and a message of hope for this year's 3 honorees: April Vanaman Biggs Amber Vanaman Julie Lamb Milligan "The overall death rate from breast cancer decreased by 1% per year from 2013 to 2018. These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advances and earlier detection through screening." Did You Know the proceeds from Dig for the Cure go to 3 local entities? St. Bernard's Imaging Center, AMMC's Project Hope, and NEA Baptist Hospital's Hope Circle. #breastcancerawareness #rampride #psdrams #digforthecure
