John Grech, Middleburg Heights Ward 4 Councilman, introduced legislation in 2019 to make October Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the City. The legislation had unanimous support from City Council and Mayor Castelli and now every October we take the time to honor the survivors, thrivers, caregivers, and those who have bravely fought as long as they could in their battle with Breast Cancer.
The strength of these women is an inspiration and symbol of hope for all those still enduring their fight with grace and determination. About 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop breast cancer and it is important to play our part in creating a better future for our mothers, sisters, daughters, and loved ones. Just through the importance of research and awareness, you can make a difference. Take a few moments this October to learn something new about how you can help make an impact.
In honor of all those affected by Breast Cancer, we will be lighting our gazebo pink and doing our part to raise awareness and show Middleburg Heights cares about the fight to end Breast Cancer.
