What Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
Why do you see so much pink every October? October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign by major breast cancer organizations to increase awareness of the disease. This includes educating the public about early detection, the cause, diagnosis, treatment, and support for survivors.
What You Can Do
- Create an Early Detection Plan and invite others to do the same.
- Share Beyond The Shock, our breast cancer educational resource with friends and family.
- Host a Fundraiser to help provide mammograms for women in need.
