October Is The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Let Us All Get Involved And Tackle It As A Team! Together We Fight!
If you’ve been seeing a bit more pink in recent weeks, it’s for good reason.
The color symbolizes Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is annually the month of October. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF), Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.
So if you see people wearing pink headbands or wristbands, if a travel soccer team is wearing pink socks with their green uniforms or if your favorite professional football player has a pink towel tucked into his pants, chances are it’s all in support of Breast Cancer.
Physicians First Messages is here to remind you about the seriousness of Breast Cancer, which is a group of cancer cells (malignant tumor) that starts in the cells of the breast.
Incredibly, breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women. Although rare, breast cancer can also attack men as well.
Although it’s not certain what exactly causes breast cancer, there are risk factors that could increase the possibility of contracting the disease such as drinking alcohol or having a family history of the disease.
The best way to beat the disease is through early detection. Women and men are encouraged to have breast self-exams; get a clinical breast exam by a qualified nurse or doctor or have a mammogram, which is an x-ray that allows a qualified specialist to examine the breast tissue for any suspicious areas.
In addition, there are many ways you can help conquer Breast Cancer through the NBCF, including:
1) Making a $100 donation, which would help provide a mammagram for a woman in need.
2) Get involved with family or friends to start or join a fundraiser.
3) Partner with a nationally-recognized charity.
4) Volunteer to help educate women about breast cancer.
For the record, NBCF (www.nationalbreastcancer.org ) is a non-profit organization with a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and a prestigious 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for eleven years.
So please, get your pink gear ready and do your part to help fight this disease. Physicians First Messages believes you can make a difference.
