FORT BEND ISD (Fort Bend ISD) – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Fort Bend ISD students and staff have joined the nation in supporting those affected with the disease, while spreading awareness of the importance of early detection, education and available support services.

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. Approximately one in eight women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. Through services provided by ACS and other organizations, improvements in cancer research, treatment and early detection, millions of women are surviving breast cancer.

In recognition of the month-long awareness campaign, FBISD students and staff have sponsored numerous “Pink Out” events, hosted Breast Cancer Awareness walks and breakfasts, partnered with Mammosafe for onsite mammograms, and participated in other events and activities.

Following are photos of FBISD students and staff observing Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
