California to Maine
19 Year Old Walks Across the United States Raising Awareness
The Breast Cancer Society, Inc was a proud sponsor of Arthur Hitchcock and his efforts to raise awareness and education on breast cancer issues. After losing his mother to breast cancer, he vowed to make a statement on how serious this disease is and remind the world, we want a cure.
Starting his journey in May 2011, Arthur walked every step with hopes to draw attention to the reality that breast cancer is still taking lives. He passed out educational materials, pink bracelets and other small reminders to everyone he came into contact with. He truly made a difference and is an inspiration to us all.
We believe it is not by accident that Arthur took his first step inside of Maine in October, 2011. October is the international month recognized for breast cancer awareness and education. It was also the one year anniversary of the passing of his mother.
Thank you Arthur. This movement has touched us all. Your perseverance and sacrifice is a symbol of hope that so many breast cancer patients appreciate.
