Commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month - Race With IIABCal Young Agents

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM). Since the program began in 1985, mammography rates have more than doubled for women age 50 and older and breast cancer deaths have declined.

This month and next IBA West’s Young Brokers & Agents Committee will support the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® 5K walks in honor of Barbara Zimmerman. Barbara was an integral part of the IBA West team and lost her battle with cancer in December of 2008.

The Komen Race for the Cure® Series raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. Let’s honor Barbara Zimmerman and the many other people whom we may know who have had a fight with this horrible disease. By working together as a Young Agent community, we can make a difference.
