On a warm, crystal-clear morning, nearly 350 walkers gathered along the Santa Barbara waterfront for the 14th annual Barbara Ireland Walk for Breast Cancer Research.

The benefit for the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara was led by Barbara Ireland, the inspiration for the walk; her husband, John; and their family, including entrepreneur and model Kathy Ireland.

According to the Cancer Center, approximately 2.4 million women in the United States are living with breast cancer, and one in eight are at risk of developing invasive breast cancer during her lifetime.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
