INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - To celebrate October as national breast cancer awareness month, Indian River Medical Center is offering its third annual "Break for Breast Cancer" breakfast on-the-go event on Oct. 12 from 7- 9 a.m.
The first 500 people who drive through the entrance loop at the Cancer Center at IRMC will receive a free continental breakfast to go, including donated Einstein Bros Bagels' pink cranberry bagels.
Greeted by nurses wearing hot pink T-shirts and boas, participants will also receive educational information about breast cancer, a commemorative breast cancer pen and a pink lunch tote.
Geoff Moore and Dana Daniels from 93.7 The Breeze will be broadcasting live from the Geoff and Dana morning show.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. The chance of developing invasive breast cancer at some time in a woman's life is a little less than one in eight. About 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in 2012, according to the American Cancer Society.
IRMC's cancer program of diagnostics, surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, medical management and outreach is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.
