It’s the most common form of cancer for women – it’s estimated that
more than 200 thousand women in the U.S. were diagnosed with breast
cancer last year and close to 40 thousand died of it.
But it does not only effect women – breast cancer claimed the lives of
close to 400 men in the U.S. last year.
And treating those suffering with the disease is not just about
medical care. It’s also about prayer.
For the second straight year, praying is exactly what people at St.
Catherine of Sienna Church on Manhattan’s Upper East Side did. They
gathered on this past Sunday, the feast of Saint Agatha, patron saint
for those living with breast cancer.
