Sign up Today!!! For Pass The Beauty 6th Annual Voices on Violence Bully & Cancer Walk

We understands that violence is intergenerational. We also understand the importance of cancer awareness. While it may be difficult to imagine someone with cancer in an abusive relationship, it's more common than you might think.

Anytime someone hurts or threatens to hurt his or her partner in any way (physically, emotionally or sexually), it's called intimate partner violence (IPV) -- more commonly known as domestic violence.

While statistics show that 85% of people affected by intimate partner violence are female, it doesn't mean that men can't be abused by their partners. Intimate partner violence occurs in all races, ages, economic classes and sexual orientations.

Cancer diagnosis and abuse

When the person being abused has been diagnosed with cancer, there are even more complicated issues that can occur.

For example, the patient might have to rely on the abuser for financial reasons, or to provide transportation to appointments, manage medication or help with basic daily tasks.

All of this can make an abuser feel like he or she has more control and more power, and therefore easier to inflict abuse without meeting any resistance.The early exposure to trauma as a result of violence is a strong predictor for someone to be either a victim or perpetrator of violence. This can show up in bullying, intimate partner violence, domestic violence, emotional or physical abuse, and mental disorders. The inclusion of local communities into participating in the Voices of Violence Bully & Cancer walk will help encourage awareness around the hidden effects of children and adults who experience trauma.

The 3K will be Saturday, August 27, 2022 from 9:00am-4:00 pm at Mill Creek Greenway Antioch Tennessee 37013

Pass the Beauty staff aim to create a positive and uplifting environment that brings community members together through music, food, activities, and the walk.
