Susan G. Komen for the Cure will be hosting Bahamas Race for the Cure this Saturday, January, 14, 2012. Breast Cancer awareness is extremely important in this country as the average age for detection is 42 years of age compared to the age of 62 in the U.S. It is suggested that Bahamian women start having mammograms as young as 30 years old! That's a harsh reality, but that's our reality. Susan G. Komen for the cure works diligently in researching the reasons why this is the case here, mainly due to genetics. This race is to raise funds so that they can continue to research and fight against this cruel disease. Whether you have been diagnosed or know someone who has been diagnosed this is an awesome event to show your support. You can visit the website to find out more information or even sign up. www.marathonforthecure.org. I will definitely be there!
