Breast Cancer doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care what color you are, where you come from, what your religious beliefs are, how old you are, or how much money you have. And while it is most associated with women, men can be stricken with breast cancer as well.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. A time when organizations come together in an effort to increase awareness of the disease by providing information and easier access to screenings, as well as, raising funds for ongoing research in the prevention and treatment.
Early detection makes a difference in the care and treatment you receive. It also means a much better chance of survival. Perform self exams. Know your body. Learn the signs and symptoms. If something just doesn’t feel right, get to a physician and don’t let that physician dismiss your concern until tests have been done to support his/her opinion that you are well.
Get involved. Get educated. Get squeezin!
