Breast cancer awareness month is here. There are several ways to honor breast cancer awareness month. Women battle with breast cancer every day. Most of us have been affected by breast cancer, whether directly or by supporting a close friend or relative who has been diagnosed.
The following are 4 things that you can do during Breast Cancer Awareness month to promote awareness, education and health.
General health check ups and cancer screenings are vital for all women. Breast cancer screening allows you to detect cancer at early stages in order to start treatment. Those of you who have experienced breast cancer should proactively encourage other women to have regular screenings and check ups.
Supporting breast cancer patients is another way to observe breast cancer awareness month. This support may take the form of physical, social or emotional support. Show support by visiting patients in the hospital, bringing gifts and visiting with patients and survivors.
You won’t complete research, but you can support research programs through donation. Research programs help pave the way for future treatment and cures.
Fundraising is another important activity that should be highly considered during breast cancer awareness month. Such fundraising may take the form of donations, buying pink ribbon products, and donating mammograms to women in need. There are countless events and races across the country to participate in this month.
