UFUSA Mother Day Classic

 Why should I enter? 

As Firefighters we are all too familiar with cancer. With so many of the firefighting family facing the disease – this event offers UFU members a chance to do something positive about it: raise awareness, funds or perhaps pay tribute to family and friends that may be or have battled Breast Cancer. 

One in seven women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. 53 new cases are diagnosed every day. And men can also be affected by breast cancer; it’s just as important for men as for women to see your doctor without delay if you find a breast change. 

It’s pleasing to note that since 1994, the 5-year survival rate for breast cancer has improved from 76% to 91% – statistical proof that research is positively impacting survival rates. Improvements in survival are attributed to earlier detection of breast cancer, through regular mammograms and improved treatment outcomes for breast cancer – which is why funding research is so vital. 

This event has always been a wonderful way of showcasing the commitment to community demonstrated by firefighters every day both on and off the job.
