Welcome to Touro Infirmary’s 31 Days of Pink, a movement to raise awareness about breast cancer during October, the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During this month, there will be one post every day to inform, educate, and provide resources for all those affected by breast cancer and those interested in learning more. Visit www.31DaysofPink.com to read our blog daily.

Today, breast cancer will affect 1 in 8 women in the United States. In Louisiana, the rate of breast cancer is 123.4 per 100,000 women, which is on average for the nation. However, Louisiana has one of the highest rates of mortality nationally.

Our goal is to join together and offer services, screening, and education to decrease the number of women and men impacted by breast cancer. We at Touro are dedicated to offering services, treatments, and education to help those suffering from the impact of breast cancer. Together we are fighting towards beating this disease. We hope that you will join the conversation.

Shop for the Cause

Please visit our local partners and help us to raise money for the Touro Supportive Cancer Care Center with your purchase. During the entire month of October and the 31 Days of Pink, proceeds from your purchase at these locations will assist us to provide care for our patients. The Cancer Care Center provides free resources and non-medical services for cancer patients and loved ones, including patient navigation, support groups, nutritional assessment and more.
