October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, meaning it is to go above and beyond to spread awareness! When it comes to spreading awareness, we must do everything in our power to educate and promote the movement in all realms of our lives. Pink October is a movement to make everything on the internet pink during the month of October. The NFL already participates by switching out their usual cleats for pink ones!
The Pink October movement is not sponsored by any corporations, rather, it is an individual movement that you can participate in by helping encourage others to make their websites and social media pages pink for the month of October! Simply changing your profile picture to the Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Ribbon can help! Likewise, displaying the pink ribbon of awareness on your car with a magnet or on your blazer at work can stir interest and raise awareness.
In addition to the Pink October movement, we encourage you to educate those around you of the importance of partaking in smart preventative habits. Breast cancer does not discriminate, meaning both men and women are susceptible to breast cancer. Everyone should conduct a self-exam every month or two. If you have never had a breast exam, it is recommended that you visit your doctor and have the doctor perform a professional one on you. During the exam, ask them to show you how to conduct a self-exam. A major part of early detection is being able to identify any unusual lumps or differences in your body.
We recognize October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month and encourage you to sport the pink Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon during the entire month!
