Thank you for visiting the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Nashville website.  We hope you will join us on October 22nd for our 15th Anniversary walk at Nissan Stadium.  Last year we had more than 33,000 cancer fighters and raised $900,000 in the fight against breast cancer.  The breast cancer death rate has declined by 35% since 1989.  We've made tremendous progress but we're not finished. Wondering where the money that is donated goes?  Check out a few of the ways the American Cancer Society is commited to making an impact on this disease:

  • $86 million currently invested by the Society in breast cancer grants
  • Fulfilling more than 160,000 patient service requests related to breast cancer every year
  • Offering an array of empowering information in the form of books, brochures (12 million each year), online education classes and personal health managers to newly diagnosed patients
  • Providing more than 341,000 rides to and from treatment each year
  • Providing more than 276,000 nights of free lodging each year
  • Helping more than 35,000 women learn how to manage the appearance-related side effects of treatment through the Look Good Feel Better program

We won't stop fighting until no one has to hear the words "you have breast cancer".  Join us in the fight by becomming a sponsor, walking as an individual, forming a team and raising funds.  

For more information on the walk please contact Debbie Thomas at 615-341-7324 or nashvilletnstrides@cancer.org.
