Whether you’ve been personally affected, or have a friend or family member who has battled cancer; it’s tougher than any WOD we’ll ever do. Through early detection, treatment and support, many are able to fight valiantly in the face of this illness. “Barbells for Boobs” is dedicated to promoting early detection of breast cancer while also helping individuals gain access to testing and treatment centers.
According to the Barbells for Boobs website, nearly 1 out of 8 women will develop breast cancer within their lifetime and nearly 7% of them will be under 40 years old.
The grant program within Barbells for Boobs provides funding to breast centers nationally as a resource for thousands of men and women who do not qualify for government funding or other charitable resources in the detection of breast cancer.
And with any sort of detection program, the earlier, the better- more treatment options and lower chances for a more serious problem to occur.
