Museum goes pink for breast cancer awareness

The month of October is designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Many people are very aware of breast cancer but don’t realize that breast cancer awareness is a huge factor in the decrease in death rates and incidences.
On Saturday, the Spencer Doll and Toy Museum will host a Pink Out Day. In honor of Breast Cancer survivors and in order to increase awareness, the museum will take a $1 off of admission for anyone who wears pink on this day. In addition, $1 for each person who wears pink will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
It’s important to note that people are becoming more knowledgeable of early signs, participating in annual exams and treatments; new cases of breast cancer declined miraculously in the early 2000s. Since the mid-1990s, death rates have decreased as well. In North Carolina alone, the estimated death rates among women from 2005-2009 is 24 per 100,000 women.
Although men can also get breast cancer, women are more likely to be diagnosed. Being aware of this disease can make a tremendous difference. So join the Spencer Doll and Toy Museum in celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month and making a difference.
Museum hours are 10 a.m. -4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. To learn more, call 704-762-9359 or visit SpencerDollAndToyMuseum.com .
