Hi friends, how's your weekend? Perhaps that you all also have see many of the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, events, activities or marathon on October month.
Do you have join some of these meaningful events/activities?
October month is also celebrated globally as the Breast Cancer Awareness.
From October 1 to October 31, there have many Breast Cancer Awareness activities/events work to increase awareness and knowledge about the disease to the Public.
Why breast cancer awareness is such an important cause to so many people around the globe? Checking the staggering breast cancer statistics will help you to find a perfect answer to this question.
Numbers presented by the American Cancer Society suggest that at least one woman in the US gets diagnosed with this form of cancer every two minutes. This includes patients in every stage of the disease, from stage 0 breast cancer (according to some doctors, at this stage the disease shouldn’t be categorized as cancer) to invasive breast cancer, the disease’s deadliest form.
Do you know 1 in 20 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, around 3500 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. About tow-third of them are between 45 to 69 years old. Around 14% of breast cancer cases in Malaysia occur in women below 40 years old.
Early detection can save your life. Do your breast self-examination every month and go for your mammogram screening.
There is life beyond breast cancer. Breast cancer not a death sentence. Many survivors live life fuller after they have battled the breast cancer disease.
I wish to spread this great positive energy campaign to all my friends and reader here.
As I'm feel great to get the invite from XIXILI to join as " Pink Supporter " to support all these strong breast cancer survivors.
