Since 1985, Breast Cancer Awareness Month has brought individuals together every October to support survivors and those fighting the battle. Read our blog to learn more about the significance of this month and how you can be a helpful ally! Don’t Face Breast Cancer Alone Every year in the United States, approximately 264,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, a disease in which malignant cells form in one’s breast tissue. According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer among women worldwide. On average, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 2 minutes, but no one should have to face it alone. Therefore, October is known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, allowing room for us to give back, reflect, and even celebrate what some have been fortunate to overcome. The Origin of Breast Cancer Awareness Month Breast Cancer Awareness Month first came to be in 1985 when a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the pharmaceutical division of Imperial Chemical Industries came to fruition. Former first lady Betty Ford kicked off a week-long event since she was a breast cancer survivor. Her diagnosis occurred while her husband, Gerald Ford, was in office, shining a necessary spotlight on this serious illness. The goal of Breast Cancer Awareness Month was to inform women about this disease and of early detection in hopes of promoting breast health. This month is also a time for breast cancer survivors to celebrate and share their unique stories while raising funds for breast cancer research. Beyond The Pink Ribbon – Ways You Can Help It’s always heartwarming to witness the support of women and men alike wearing pink ribbons in honor of breast cancer, but how can we contribute further? Here are a few ways you can get involved: • Become an ambassador – The National Breast Cancer Foundation allows you to sign up to become a community ambassador. This will allow you to push local, state, and federal legislators to back and fund breast cancer research and awareness programs. • Partake in Fundraising Events – Events such as Race for the Cure or Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk help raise money and awareness in the fight against breast cancer. Volunteer, participate or donate to show your support. • Share Survivor Stories – Honor and share the stories of those who have survived breast cancer. Whether via a Facebook share or a column piece in your local newspaper, inducing hope in those experiencing the problematic effects of this illness is incredibly helpful and inspiring. • Spread the Word on Mammograms – Remind loved ones of the importance of routine mammograms; these breast screenings allow for early detection and more effective treatment. Simply stated, mammograms save lives! • Raise Awareness Regarding Risk Factors – Be aware and in the know of risks that increase your likelihood of breast cancer and be sure those around you do as well. For example, excessive drinking, lack of physical activity, and obesity have all been linked to breast cancer.
