October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
In a global effort to raise awareness on breast cancer, October has been designated as the Pink Month. The Pink Month is a month where efforts to educate those concerned about the disease, including early identification and signs and symptoms associated.
The past year has posed a challenge to just about everything, and breast cancer prevention is no exception. And though we saw setbacks in screenings and early detection, we’re rising to the challenge together.
For the past 30 years, National Breast Cancer Foundation has supported women by helping them get access to the education, screening, and support they need. This is our moment to rise up and do even more.
Where might we go if every woman had access to the care and screening she needs? How might the story change if we all gave a little of our time, our resources, our energy? What might the future look like with more education, more screening, more health equity?
