Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

2020 has been a powerful reminder that we are all in this together, and our choices and actions have the power to protect the most vulnerable among us in a big way. The same holds true when it comes to breast cancer.

Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime? While you can’t usually prevent cancer, it is important to be proactive about your health.

According to the American Cancer Society, when breast cancer is detected early, and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%. Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams, and scheduling regular clinical breast exams and mammograms.

 Here are just a few ways you can help women in need this month:

 

Screening, Access & Treatment
Make a one-time or monthly donation to help a woman in need. New this year, choose exactly where your donation goes. Learn more.

 

Education

Support
Volunteer to join virtually in Helping Women Now. Spread the word about Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or LinkedIn. Host a virtual fundraiser or Facebook fundraiser benefitting NBCF.
