Texas Swim Academy will be hosting a special breast cancer awareness day on Oct. 19 from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. to raise awareness about inflammatory breast cancer, a rare and aggressive form where the cancer cells block lymph vessels in the skin of the breast, leaving it swollen, red or inflamed looking.

According to the American Cancer Society, there will be 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed in 2016 alone and 40,450 breast cancer deaths. While the numbers are staggering, early detection and awareness is essential.

Since opening, Texas Swim Academy has dedicated itself to saving lives, and by bringing awareness to the community about such a prevalent disease, our hope is to play even the smallest role in diminishing such astounding statistics by informing the community and encouraging all women to be advocates for their health.

Join us as we hear from breast cancer survivor, and founder of the Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) Network, Terri Arnold, as she shares her story, as well as more about the mission of the IBC Network. Though their purpose is simple – fund research for IBC and provide an avenue for proactive education about IBC – it takes many people to make a difference, and we look forward to raising awareness for such a good cause.

Nearly 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime, and the likelihood is you may have already been affected in one way or another by this disease. It doesn’t discriminate.

We look forward to you joining the Texas Academy Swim Academy family as we honor those who have lost their battle to breast cancer and the 2.8 million survivors today whose story continues by raising awareness and staying informed.
