October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Bennett Funeral Service takes this opportunity to recognize and remember the many women and men affected by this complex disease.
The color pink has become a symbol of breast cancer awareness; As such, Bennett Funeral Service staff will wear pink to show their support and to raise awareness for individuals and families affected by breast cancer.
Robbie Bennett, President and Owner of Bennett Funeral Service, said: “Every family has been affected by this disease in some way. Most people know someone who has had or is currently battling breast cancer. Our employees want to show our support for those who are struggling with breast cancer and to show our respect to those who have died from breast cancer.”
Bennett added, “According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 287,850 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in 2022.”

Rhonda Bennett, vice president and owner of Bennett Funeral Service, stated, “In the United States, approximately 2,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2022. A man’s lifetime risk of developing breast cancer is about one in 883, according to the American Cancer Society. Some people don’t know that men can be diagnosed with breast cancer. Although breast cancer predominates in women, we hope our pink clothing will serve as a reminder to men and women to be careful with self-examinations and mammograms. Our employees are willing to wear pink because many of them have been affected by this disease in some way. By wearing pink in October, we want our community to know we care about them and their loved ones.”
