Natalie’s Teams with The Pink Fund for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

About 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime – and according to the Medical Journal of Medicine, studies have shown that nearly 50 percent of bankruptcies are due to medical expenses. This campaign seeks to raise awareness of breast cancer and the struggles that breast cancer patients face every day that go beyond the cancer itself. In some cases, the financial burden of the diagnosis is so great that patients will actually decline in treatment.
