Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Please remember October is a month dedicated to "breast cancer awareness" and all things PINK. What does breast cancer awareness mean? For some it is a reminder to get your annual mammogram.

For others, October is a painful reminder of their breast cancer experience, and the tens of thousands of lives lost annually to this disease. However, for us at AROC, October for us along with our partners and those who will host a fundraiser to support our efforts and raise money for our "essential" mission.

Please know without your contributions/support from AROC "365 PINK FUNDS", many individuals in active treatment for breast cancer are at risk for a sudden hard financial loss. In other words, they are at-risk of not showing up for chemo infusion or radiation, or they do not fill prescriptions.

Treatment patients are overwhelmed and can lead to earlier mortality, an outcome that is unacceptable. When a loss of income comes into conflict or opposition with the cost of health insurance premiums, high deductibles, and co-pays, patients and their families are at risk of suffering financial losses.

The threat of vehicle repossession, utility shutoffs, foreclosure, or eviction, can result in patients making decisions to stop treatment and return to work. Many women will have the honor of sharing that these are choices they feel compelled to make, until they learn about AROC "365 PINK FUNDS".

If you would like to share your story/ your journey, send it to is at: today.

For women with HER2+or HER2- or metastatic disease awaiting a social security disability decision or Social Security Disability Income payments to begin, AROC 365 PINK FUNDS can provide them with up to six months of financial assistance (If funds are awarded).
