The U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) and U.S. Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) held its 5th Annual Breast Cancer/Cancer Awareness event to increase awareness to the workforce at the Nolan Building on Fort Belvoir, Virginia, Oct. 26.
The event was hosted by Charles F. Sardo, INSCOM chief of staff, who echoed the predominant theme of all the speakers to the combined ARCYBER/INSCOM audience, "If we can save one person due to their participation today, our time today will have been well worth it."
Guest speakers included Michelle Ballard, spouse of Maj. Gen. Christopher S. Ballard, INSCOM commanding general, Andrea Auguerriberry, a 25-year cancer survivor, and Melissa O'Neil, an Army veteran and two-time breast cancer survivor.
Following the guest speakers, participants were invited to join a fitness demonstration, browse information booths and enjoy an assortment of healthy refreshments. Highlighted by the color pink, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease and emphasize the importance of early detection.
