Founded in 1985, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international health campaign held every October and was established to increase awareness of this disease and to raise funds for research.  The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.

The Cherokee High School Booster Club recently asked everyone attending the Cherokee vs. Murphy football game last Friday night to wear pink to show their support of this effort.  The Booster Club sold pink shirts at the gate and held a 50/50 raffle with the proceeds being donated to the local Cherokee Cancer Support Group.  We thank the Booster Club for taking the initiative to increase the awareness of this disease that affects so many of our friends and family members.

The Cherokee Cancer Support Group is a non-profit organization that assists cancer patients and their care-givers on the Qualla Boundary, indiscriminately.  Their objective is to support, educate and provide individual services as needed.  This group meets the first Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at Betty’s House located at 40 Goose Creek Road in the Birdtown Community.  If you would like to make a financial donation or provide other resources for this organization, please call (828) 497-0788 or contact them by e-mail at  Their mailing address is P. O. Box 2220, Cherokee, NC.
