October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is every October. Why a whole month? Because 1 in every 8 women will receive a breast cancer diagnosis in her lifetime.

Across the country, organizations such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., and the American Cancer Society, hold fundraising events and provide information to the public about breast cancer. Their websites are full of information about breast cancer risks, ways to decrease those risks, the importance of early detection, treatment options, and expected side effects. These organizations provide access to a wide variety of critical resources to help guide and support breast cancer patients.

These organizations also offer information and resources for caregivers, the important people in the life of a breast cancer patient who will be there beside her on her journey.
Caregivers can include spouses, friends, neighbors, children, coworkers, and others who provide emotional support, physical assistance, and services necessary to relieve some hardships that often accompany a cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month also includes celebrating the survivors of this pervasive disease. It is an opportunity for women to gather together and remind the world that a breast cancer diagnosis does not have to mean the worst. Sharing stories of courage, strength, and survival gives many women battling breast cancer the hope they need to continue to fight another day.
