Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
This month we celebrate survivors, educate others, raise awareness and encourage our friends and loved ones to get checked annually.
One in Eight Women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their lifetime. That’s 12.3% of women! Breast Cancer is not limited to women, although It is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.
These numbers can be difficult to comprehend, but they are a reality. The rate of women in the US between the ages of 50-74 who have had a mammogram in the last two years is 78.7%.
Since 1990, death from breast cancer has been on a decline thanks to tireless efforts of foundations, organizations, and those who have made it their mission to educate, raise awareness and make a change. Continued research and education is vital to developing more treatment plans and understanding how this cancer works.
There are few things we can control, but staying knowledgeable and living a healthy, balanced lifestyle can help reduce the risk. The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is currently giving away a free “Breast Health Guide” this month only to encourage everyone to be proactive about breast health. This guide covers common questions, healthy habits to incorporate in our daily lives, how to assess personal risk, signs and symptoms and so much more.
