National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month; learn how you can get involved.

Breast cancer is one of the most devastating diseases in America.  Every year,  over 246,660 American women and approximately 2,600 men are diagnosed with breast cancer.  This October, celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by doing your part to support the fight against breast cancer.

What is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign held in October meant to increase the spread of educational material about breast cancer.  Once of the main goals of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is to educate women about mammograms.  Because mammograms can detect breast cancer in its early stages, they are considered one of the most effective tools in the fight against breast cancer.  This October, make sure you are dedicated to your breast health by scheduling your annual mammogram today.

How can I get involved this month?

During National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, you can get involved by donating to legitimate breast cancer organizations.  This month, you can also organize a fundraiser that benefits breast cancer research initiatives.  Additionally, during October there are several events and fundraisers that you can attend to show your support for breast cancer research.  Another simple way to get involved this month is to wear the signature breast cancer pink ribbon.  Wear your pink ribbon proudly and encourage your friends and family members to show their support as well.  This National Breast Cancer Month let’s all work together to find a cure!
