Welcome to the Palm Beach County Chapter of The USBC
Cure Breast Cancer
in 8 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.
More women die from breast cancer
then from any other disease except lung cancer.
Susan Komen was one of those women.
Because of this, her sister started the Susan G Komen foundation
to cure breast cancer AND IT IS WORKING. Since 1989 there has
been a 38% decline in the death rate from breast cancer. If it
is detected early, there is an almost 100% chance of survival.
You can join the fight.
The eighth annual Bowl for the
cure doubles tournament will be held at Verdes Tropicana Feb..
24th and 25th. All proceeds from this tournament will be given
to the Susan G Koman foundation. 25% of this money goes for research,
some of it at the University of Miami and the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville.
The other 75% stays in south Florida to help local women get mammograms
and other cancer treatments.
This tournament is open to all
adult USBC members from any association. The team can be comprised
of any 2 people, male or female.
