Posted: Updated:

October marks the start of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Carol Donnelly from the Gloria Gemma foundation, and two-time breast cancer survivor joined us live on ABC6 News this Morning.

Breast Cancer is a serious disease in our state. One out of every six women in Rhode Island will be diagnosed during her lifetime, and breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Rhode Island women.

Upcoming Events in honor of Breast cancer Awareness:

  • Monday, October 1st, the foundation is introducing its Starfish Project at Providence Place Mall at 10 a.m.
  • The Flames of Hope event is now in its eighth year. More than 100,000 people attend. It takes place during Columbus Day weekend on October 11-13 this year.
