We’re back for another year of making strides against breast cancer in Orlando!
Learn about our passion for fighting breast cancer and how you can support the cause by joining or donating to our team
With such a high prevalence and a threat posed to both women and men, we must do all that we can to support those fighting breast cancer and the researchers seeking new treatments and a cure.
Breast cancer accounts for 1 in 3 of all new female cancers each year, and the American Cancer Society estimates that in the U.S. in 2023:
- About 297,790 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
- About 55,720 new cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) will be diagnosed.
- About 43,700 women will die from breast cancer. 
Our team at Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center is passionate about fighting breast cancer, which is why we’ve participated in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk and fundraiser every year since 2019, and we’re teaming up again this year!
Keep reading for all the details you need on how to join or support our team and get involved:
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is an initiative started by the American Cancer Society with the goal of ending breast cancer as it exists today by uniting communities (like Orlando), companies (like Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center), and individuals (like YOU!)
This year, we invite you to participate in the 27th Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Orlando Presented by AdventHealth. The event (along with similar ones across the country) raises money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.
As we’ve done the past couple of years, we’re building a team for the Making Strides of Orlando event. Our very own Erika Jordan, hyperbaric director and founder of Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center, is also the logistics chair for the Making Strides of Orlando committee this year after a successful tenure in this role during past years. We invite you to join us by walking alongside us to fundraise or donate to our Hyperbaric Healing team.

Where and when?
If you’d like to walk with us, the event takes place on Saturday, October 28, 2023, with opening ceremonies at 7:00 a.m. and the walk beginning at 9:00 a.m. at the Northeast Corner of Lake Eola Park (566 E. Robinson St., Downtown Orlando).
While the opening ceremonies are optional, they’re a lot of fun! They include entertainment, survivor celebrations and gifts, team activities, sponsor tents, refreshments, giveaways, and more.
By signing up to fundraise and walk with us, you’ll be helping the American Cancer Society fund the future of life-saving cancer research and patient programs like Road to Recovery, Reach to Recovery, and our Hope Lodges.
At Hyperbaric Healing Treatment Center, we treat many patients who are suffering from the side effects of breast and other types of cancer, including non-healing surgical wounds and delayed radiation injury.
With our lives being touched on a daily basis by breast cancer, we’re committed to walking for:
- Our patients
- Our family
- Our friends
- Survivor fighter, Subira Folami
- In loving memory, Ayshia Arcenauxe Price
“We’re incredibly excited to contribute in support of not only the wonderfully strong women we treat but also those fighting breast cancer across the United States and around the world,” shares Erika. “This year, I’m especially excited because my sweet toddler Ella and baby Eva will be ‘walking’ with the Hyperbaric Healing team too.”
