“Women for Hogan” kickoff to spotlight breast cancer and domestic violence awareness on Wed., Oct. 1

ANNAPOLIS, MD – This Wednesday, October 1, the Hogan for Governor campaign will put a spotlight on Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Domestic Violence Awareness Month, both of which are celebrated in October, by kicking off its “Women for Hogan” campaign on Lawyer’s Mall. The event will feature appearances by Larry Hogan; Hogan’s daughter Jaymi, the star of his most recent TV campaign ad; and advocates for women’s issues.

“I am looking forward to joining women of all ages on Lawyer’s Mall this Wednesday—women who are working tirelessly to put an end to two devastating diseases, breast cancer and domestic violence,” Hogan said.

Nationwide, more than 230,000 cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed this year; 4,700 of them will be in Maryland. And according to the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence, 50 people lost their lives to domestic violence in Maryland last year.

The event will kick off on Wednesday, Oct. 1, at 4 p.m. on Lawyer’s Mall in Annapolis, just behind the State House. The event is open to the public and to the media. The campaign asks attendees to wear pink and/or purple to show their support for these two important causes.

To 3:53p,
Oh, so you are talking about "His new war on men", or his "war on women?" I, for one, just had my Mom die from cancer, and I really didn't like it. I am really more concerned that of six children, none of us had the resources to pay for her treatment because of the present administration with Anthony Brown in charge, were unable to obtain proper care in Maryland because of his excellent handling of the Obamacare site, which was his only job.

Please clue me in.
