October is National Breast Cancer awareness month.  Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States (other than skin cancer).

You may not believe this, but men can get breast cancer as well. Breast cancer in men is a rare disease. Less than 1 percent of all breast cancers occur in men.

Each year there is an event called Pack the Place in Pink.

I sit on the board of this non-profit organization and I am very proud to be associated with these great women.

The mission of Pack the Place in Pink is to help breast cancer patients.

Our main objective is to help local Montana breast cancer patients.

We are a not-for-profit Montana project working to support breast cancer patients here in Montana, providing them with financial assistance in all of our local communities.

PPP event is coming up on Oct. 20 at Skyview High School as the Falcons take on the West High Bears.

Show your support for this great event by getting your Pack the Place in Pink T-shirt for just $8.

T-shirts are available at Albertson's in the Heights and at our Pack the Place in Pink store front at Sixth Avenue North and 30th Street.

The PPP Store is open Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

All proceeds go directly to help patients across the state. Get more information at Packtheplaceinpink.org and on Facebook.
