The numbers are scary. Every three minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. Every 12 minutes another person dies from the disease. In the United States, some 2 million women have been diagnosed with and treated for breast cancer. Those facts come courtesy of a Pink PBA-free bottle I bought this month, when all the stores are flush with pink products promoting breast cancer awareness. I even saw chicken feed in a pink-accented bag. I kid you not.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought now would be as good a time as any take a look at just a few of the ways OSU students give back to not only the area of Columbus, but also the nation as a whole. I plan on doing a series of three posts for the month of October about how OSU students give back to the community, the first of which, will discuss various awareness campaigns that have been around campus for at least two years.
