October–Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As most everyone knows, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A large number of organizations and medical establishments have joined forces and are working together to promote awareness of this disease, share important information, educate, and help provide greater access to services. So many women’s lives have been saved in recent years due to these efforts. The greatest goal of these groups, of course, is finding a cure to save so many more.

Fortunately, in the meantime, more and more women are learning to take charge of their own breast health–

  • knowing what is normal for them
  • knowing what changes to look for
  • doing regular self-exams
  • letting their doctors know of any changes
  • getting regular screenings (based on their doctor’s suggested schedule)

And for those who are living with breast cancer, either as a warrior, a survivor or a caregiver, these organizations provide invaluable assistance, encouragment, education, treatment and hope. 

Although October puts the spotlight on this effort, the fight to find a cure continues throughout the year. In the meantime there remains much to be accomplished.

For more information, please check out any of the following websites–a few of the many that provide information on breast cancer facts and statistics, risk factors and prevention, self-awareness, early detection and screening. Additionally, they offer ways you can become involved in helping those who are seeking a cure…either through donation, participation in local events or becoming an advocate.

Finally, just a gentle reminder to take time now to schedule that all-important mammogram!
