Making a Pink Difference

Publisher Linda Hunsicker Publisher Celeste Kline

Dear Readers,

The chill in the air reminds us that summer is over and Autumn is upon us. You can smell it in the air, you can see it in the trees and you can feel it as life turns ever so slightly more serious from the days of summer. Although we will miss summer, Autumn is a beautiful time of the year.

October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This issue of Montgomery County Women’s Journal is dedicated to a better understanding of this life threatening disease and the growing number of ways to detect, treat and survive its impacts. Our cover story - The American Cancer Society: Making a Difference on pages 24-25. Their article has a wealth of information about the upcoming community events, programs, services and 24/7 cancer information that their community organization provides for cancer patients and survivors, as well as, their families, friends and volunteers.

Breast Cancer Awareness month means even more to me now being a breast cancer survivor myself. Read about my cancer journey ‘An Uplifting Moment’ on page 15.
Having a cancer diagnosis is difficult. Finding help and support shouldn’t be. Emotional support programs connect newly diagnosed breast cancer patients with breast cancer survivors. Read this issue to _nd out more about local and regional businesses, professionals and nonprofit groups who offer support and treatment. Learn about opportunities for all of us better understand and survive breast cancer.

In health and happiness,

Linda Hunsicker and Celeste Kline, Publishers
