“No matter the person or relation to us, we will always have hope to find a cure” was the presentation members of Jacksboro FCCLA gave before the Jack County Commissioners Court Monday to spread awareness about breast cancer.

Ashley Cox, Carly Rhoades and Darby Sherrod informed the Commissioners Court about breast cancer, how to prevent it, and how to help find a cure.

An estimated 232,340 new cases in women and 2,240 new cases in men of invasive breast cancer are expected to have occurred this past year, and in our community there have been several individuals and families effected by breast cancer in the past 5 years.

There are many ways that a community and individuals can help. This help can be provided by giving physical and emotional support, donating time and/or money to finding a cure, and volunteering with any breast cancer organizations. The Jacksboro FCCLA would like to encourage all to take part to help find a cure.
