Did you know about one in eight U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime? October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.
R Lucas Construction and Design is spreading the word in a sweet way. For the third year in a row, the Columbus, Georgia-based design-build firm has partnered with Gigi’s Cupcakes of Columbus to sell 300 cupcakes at the Ledger-Enquirer’s Taste of Home Cooking School, to be held at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center on Thursday, October 2. Each cupcake will sell for $5. R Lucas Construction and Design will match cupcake sales and, thus, donate up to $3,000 to the American Cancer Society.
“Cupcakes For Cancer is in honor of one of my dear friends, who has been battling Stage IV Breast Cancer for three years,” says R Lucas Construction and Design Founder Ron Lucas. “She may ultimately lose the battle, but not before she shows cancer that she will go out on her own terms.”
