This year, Pheasant Run Resort is taking on the fight against breast cancer. We have created a Pheasant Run Campaign so that we can raise funds to stop this disease that affects 1 in 8 women during their lifetime. As the world's largest and most impactful breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen supports more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit outside the U.S. government, while providing real-time help to those facing the disease.
We want to join Susan G. Komen in their efforts to end breast cancer forever and we are asking for your help to make that vision a reality. Your gift will help Susan G. Komen provide education, screening and treatment programs for women and men in our community, and support cutting-edge research so that one day we can live in a world without breast cancer.
We are hoping to raise at least $100 through our donation site. Please help us reach our goal by making a donation online HERE.
Thank you for generosity and joining us in the fight!

Breast Self-Awareness Message
The signs of breast cancer are not the same for all women. It is important to know how your breasts normally look and feel. If you notice any change, see a health care provider.

Understanding Breast Health & Breast Cancer
Many changes will occur in your breasts during your lifetime. Learning about breast anatomy and how the breasts function can help you understand which changes are normal and which are not. Learn about breast cancer and other breast conditions.
There are many factors linked to breast cancer. The two most common are: being a woman and getting older. We've learned a lot about risk factors, but we still don't understand what causes breast cancer to develop at a certain time in a certain person. It's likely a combination of factors. Although there are things you can do to manage your risk, no one has control over whether he or she gets breast cancer.
Regular screening tests can reduce your chance of dying from breast cancer. Screening tests can find breast cancer early - when the chances of survival are highest.
Breast cancer is often first suspected when a lump or a change in the breast is found. Or perhaps, an abnormal area was seen on your mammogram. Most of the time, these findings don't turn out to be cancer. But the only way to know for sure is through follow-up tests. We offer several materials to help guide you through the journey ahead.
The goal of treating early breast cancer is to get rid of the cancer and keep it from coming back. Treatment for early breast cancer includes some combination of surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy and targeted therapy. These treatments are designed to remove the cancer from the breast and destroy any cancer that might still be in the body.
There are a lot of things to consider during and after treatment. No matter where you are in your treatment, listen to your body and have regular follow-up visits with your doctor.
