Millions of women worldwide have been affected by breast cancer in one way or another. It is now the most common cancer in women with one in eight likely to be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime.
However, there is some positive news: through regular self-examination, medical screenings, early detection, increased awareness and improving treatment options, the incidence rates have been declining in recent years.
Whether it’s been a personal health journey, a family member or close friend whose battling the disease, it is important to step up and learn about ways to support the cause.
Running throughout October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign with the aim to educate and increase awareness of the disease. Over the years, through numerous fundraisers and initiatives, the foundation has raised the vital funds to provide mammograms for women in need. The charity organisation also pairs with leading fashion and lifestyle brands to release special edition pink ribbon items with a percentage of the proceeds going towards their mission.
While most people are aware, it’s easy to push to one side and overlook the important steps to detecting the disease in its early stages and doing regular examinations.
