October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – a time for us to spread awareness about and contribute to the effort to eradicate breast cancer.
For all women, breast cancer awareness month should serve as a reminder to keep up with monthly self-examinations and to visit the doctor for regular mammograms to help promote early detection.
A mammogram – an x-ray picture of the breast – is the best way to find out if you have breast cancer because they can reveal a tumor when it’s too small for you or your physician to detect. All women nearing age 40 should get a mammogram done every year. For those who have a history of breast cancer in the family, it is highly recommended that you start getting mammograms at an earlier age.
We encourage all our clients to participate in Breast Cancer Awareness events during the month of October. This October when you see something encased in pink, remember those who have battled against breast cancer, and preserve the hope for a new treatment or cure that helps save a life.
