October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Learn how you can support the fight against breast cancer.
Breast cancer is one of the most devastating diseases in America. In 2017 alone, over 250,000 women and more than 2,400 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer. For American women, breast cancer is responsible for more deaths than any other type of cancer. The widespread and deadly nature of breast cancer is why it’s so important that men and especially women be vigilant about their breast health. That’s where National Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes in.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an educational outreach program held every October. The goal of this month is to distribute educational materials and to encourage men and women to be proactive about breast cancer screenings. One of the major aims of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is to promote mammograms. Mammograms are one of the only ways to detect breast cancer in its early stages and they are considered one of the best tools in the fight against breast cancer. Early detection can increase your chances of beating breast cancer, so make sure you schedule your annual mammogram today.
There are countless ways to get involved this month. For instance, you could donate to legitimate research initiatives looking to find a cure for breast cancer. Additionally, you could attend one of the many fundraisers and events held throughout the month. Finally, one of the easiest ways to get involved is to wear the signature pink breast cancer ribbon and post on social media. Encourage your friends and family to join you in supporting the fight to end breast cancer.
