PROCLAMATION

Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October 2023


WHEREAS, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness of this complex disease and fund research into its causes, treatment, and cure. Since 1985, individuals, businesses, and communities have come together every October to show their support for the many people affected by breast cancer, and; 

WHEREAS, for many people, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is also a difficult reminder of their personal experience with breast cancer and the many lives we have lost to this disease. An estimated 43,700 U.S. women will die from breast cancer in 2023, and;

WHEREAS, 1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. In 2023, an estimated 297,790 women and 2,800 men will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and;

WHEREAS, when caught in its earliest, localized stages, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%. Advances in early detection and treatment methods have significantly increased breast cancer survival rates in recent years, and there are currently over 3.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States, and; 

WHEREAS, awareness of the facts and statistics surrounding breast cancer in the United States is key in empowering individuals to make informed decisions about their health, and;

NOW, THEREFORE, we, the Board of Selectmen of Madison, Connecticut, do hereby proclaim the month of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the Town of Madison, and urge everyone to get the facts about mammography and breast cancer. Dated at Madison, Connecticut this 12th day of October 2023.
