October 2022 – Breast Cancer Awareness Month

At Good Shepherd Hospice we recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month and all those affected by breast cancer all over the world.

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among American women. Each year in the United States about 264,000 women and 2,400 men are diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks to early detection and treatment improvements, the number of breast cancer deaths has decreased by over 42% since 1989.

PINK represents HONOR, UNITY, and COMPASSION. That’s why we wear PINK to honor breast cancer patients­.  These same traits of honor, unity, and compassion are exemplified in the care we provide to our patients at Good Shepherd Hospice. Our amazing care teams provide physical, emotional, and spiritual support to our patients and their families, serving them with compassion and dignity.
