Let’s Celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Let’s Celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, let’s all do our part to end breast cancer.

October is recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an education campaign dedicated to encouraging both women and men to take a vested interest in their breast health.  This October, we’d like to invite you to join us in our support of the fight against breast cancer.

How can we get involved this month?

1) One easy way to celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is for all of us to take care of ourselves.  This October, we can all make an effort to make our breast health a priority.  For instance, we can administer breast self-exams or schedule our yearly mammograms.  These are both easy ways to screen for breast cancer.

2) Another way we can show our support is by donating to legitimate breast cancer research initiatives and charities.  Some excellent organizations include: Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.

3) Finally, we can also participate in the many fundraisers and events held throughout the month of October.  For instance, Susan G. Komen hosts “Race for the Cure” in cities across America and The American Cancer Society hosts their “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.”  These are just a couple of the many fantastic events that we, our friends, and our families can all participate in this month.

4)  If you or someone you care about does have cancer, it isn’t necessarily the doom and gloom diagnosis from prior years.  My mother is a 10+ breast cancer survivor.  She had a mastectomy in June 2007 and she’s still going strong.

5)  Just because you are a man, doesn’t mean that you don’t need to be concerned.  One of my sons has had breast cancer twice.  Once in his very early 20’s when he had a mastectomy, and just last summer, when he was able to have a lumpectomy.  Both were discovered by him and fortunately, both instances were caught in time.

5)  Lastly, I am an Intern with the Cancer Support Community.  Please consider this national organization for you or your loved ones.  All services are provided at no cost.  There are weekly support groups, wellness events, physical activities, support for the caregivers etc.  To find one in your area, log on to www.cancersupportcommunity.org.
