October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the time of year the whole world turns PINK! Because breast cancer can almost always be cured with early detection, it’s very important to keep up awareness. This is why we THINK PINK in October.
How can you help promote awareness this October? The first step is easy – wear pink. It can be anything from wearing a pink ribbon or corsage, to a full-on pink suit. When someone asks you about your pink, explain to them that you are helping save lives!! 1 in 8 women will be stricken with breast cancer in her lifetime. Until there is a cure, breast cancer awareness and early detection is the key. With early detection, we all win!
Remember these key steps to awareness:
- Know your risks.
- Get screened.
- Know what is normal for you.
- Make healthy life choices.
Real life heros: If you know someone who has championed their fight with breast cancer, send them Think Pink flowers this October to let them know how happy you are to have them in your life.
