2018 Rock Your Rack opening day events

The 2018 Rock Your Rack Event

Rock your Rack Logo

When my mom was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I was devastated, my aunt had died from the disease. But my mom, who is by far the strongest woman I know, fought it with multiple surgeries and radiation and was doing well, until it came back. She did a full mastectomy this time,  it was caught early so nothing else was needed and was told 10 years later she was in the clear. But it came back. She had to do aggressive chemo this time but she is doing well. Please pray for her if that is ok to ask. And please give generously because education and early detection saves lives. This year’s event will support the National Breast Cancer Foundation which provides free mammograms, education, support and early detection services to anyone in need.

This year’s event officially opens to the public on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 12:00 am SLT and will close at 11:59 pm SLT on Saturday, October 13, 2018.

Here are just a few of the events on opening weekend. For a complete listing of events and more details on this year’s event, please visit the website: http://rockyourrack.wordpress.com

About the National Breast Cancer Foundation

The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34. At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options. After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need. This mission includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.
