02 Oct October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
All month long during October, Breast Cancer Awareness is observed. Maybe observed isn't the right term, because there are thousands of fundraisers, tribute walks, and other events supporting and raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
All are encourage to get involved, whether you have breasts or not. Whether you know someone who has been affected by breast cancer or not, you are urged to help promote this movement. A startling statistic is that 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will get breast cancer in their lifetime. Wow! Most of us know many more than eight women and to know that one out of every eight will get breast cancer, is a scary thought.
However, there are been HUGE strides in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer over the past few decades. Survival rates are near 100% when detected early, which is one of the main reasons behind Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign. You can check out some ways to get involved here.
