American Internet Tech donates to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (October 2022)

 October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness about the impact of breast cancer. We must ensure that every woman has access to the screenings she needs and the support she deserves. Every October, people all over the world show their support for everyone affected by breast cancer.

More than a third of women don’t check their breasts. Too many people with secondary breast cancer experience delays in diagnosis. It’s rare, but men can get breast cancer too. Signs and symptoms of breast cancer include: 

  • A lump or swelling in the breast, upper chest or armpit
  • A change to the skin, such as puckering or dimpling
  • A change in the colour of the breast – the breast may look red or inflamed
  • A nipple change, for example it has become pulled in (inverted)
  • Rash or crusting around the nipple
  • Unusual liquid (discharge) from either nipple
  • Changes in size or shape of the breast

On its own, pain in your breasts is not usually a sign of breast cancer. But look out for pain in your breast or armpit that’s there all or almost all the time. Although rare, men can get breast cancer. The most common symptom of breast cancer in men is a lump in the chest area.

Get used to checking regularly and be aware of anything that’s new or different for you.

Three fathers reunited Saturday, Oct. 1 at the 2022 St. Jude IRONMAN® 70.3® Memphis in a demonstration not only of physical strength but the power of a unique shared connection - having children treated for cancer at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. The past weekend, the now fast friends who met at St. Jude, joined more than 2,000 registered athletes from 16 countries and 47 U.S. states who converged in West Tennessee for the second year of this event. 

Events like the St. Jude IRONMAN 70.3 Memphis help to make a tremendous impact globally. As they swim, bike and run, these generous supporters are helping advance the six-year, $12.9 billion St. Jude strategic plan that will increase global investments to impact more of the 400,000 kids around the world with cancer each year.

American Internet Tech is always standing by St. Jude and proceeds to one more monthly donation.
