October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Nothing light hearted today. Just a reminder of one of the nation’s major health issues. 

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer (skin cancer is number one) among women in the United States. But millions of women are surviving the disease thanks in part to early detection and recent improvements in treatment.
The American Cancer Society is actively fighting breast cancer by helping women get tested to find breast cancer earlier, and helping them understand their treatment options and cope with the physical and emotional side effects. We also fund research to help prevent, find, and treat breast cancer.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. Medicine has made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and needs your help!

The American Cancer Society has played a role in nearly every breast cancer breakthrough in recent history. Our staff of full-time researchers produce detailed analyses of breast cancer trends and investigate the links between lifestyle and breast cancer. We also fund external researchers dedicated to finding better ways to prevent, detect, and treat the disease, and improve the quality of life of breast cancer patients and survivors.

Join the fight against breast cancer. Your support helps us raise awareness and funds that help people reduce their risk of cancer; provide free programs and services for breast cancer patients; and fund groundbreaking breast cancer research. Your participation also helps our advocacy affiliate, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, make sure breast cancer remains a priority issue for elected officials.

Whether you’re worried about developing breast cancer, making decisions about treatment, or trying to stay well after treatment, there is help.

Staying at a healthy weight, being physically active, and limiting how much alcohol you drink can help reduce your risk of breast cancer. Regular screening can often find breast cancer early when treatments are more likely to be successful.
