Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide and is also the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women. According to Komen.org, the official Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation website, it was estimated that in 2018 alone, there would be 40,920 breast cancer deaths.

Although the statistics are overwhelming, there is hope. If found and treated early, most women are able to become survivors of breast cancer. October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is an opportunity to raise awareness about breast cancer and the importance of detecting breast cancer early.

This October, help spread breast cancer awareness or raise money to help put a stop to breast cancer by doing one or more of these five things:

  • Post facts and information on your social media about breast cancer.
  • For example: “According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, there are over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors alive in the United States today. Help spread breast cancer awareness today!”
  • Encourage women to get mammograms every two years.
  • Wear pink throughout October for support.
  • Wear a pink ribbon, a symbol that represents breast cancer, and share information with people if they ask about the ribbon.
  • Raise money for the cause by selling baked goods or by selling raffle tickets, and then donate that money to a breast cancer program like Susan G. Komen!
