October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Posted: Oct 01 2014
Breast cancer awareness is an effort to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of breast cancer through education on symptoms and treatment. Supporters hope that greater knowledge will lead to earlier detection of breast cancer, which is associated with higher long-term survival rates, and that money raised for breast cancer will produce a reliable, permanent cure.We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go
Breast cancer is an issue that people—women, especially—should be thinking about year-round. But it takes center stage in October during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a critical reminder to take charge of your own health, from knowing your family’s medical history to getting an annual check-up and mammogram. So this month, whether you’re just giving to your favorite charity and support companies and organizations making a difference.
