Breast cancer is an incurable and fatal tumor that starts within the cells of a breast. In the United States breast cancer is a very common disease with over more than three million cases a year. About 40,290 women are expected to die from breast cancer in 2015, but the death rates have been decreasing since 1989 according to breastcancer.org. During Mercy’s “Pink” week during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Mercy High School took a stand against breast cancer and marched down Northern Parkway, hoping to get as many cars to blow their horns as possible. Walking down Northern Parkway while waving the pink flags and banners, Mercy High School raised awareness of the cancer and encouraged others to do the same.
