October is breast cancer awareness month. In my work this is an important month. It includes legislative breakfasts, educational sessions, screening events, and op-eds for newspapers.
Despite the plethora of information on breast cancer there are times when the information gets lost in the shuffle of life. Messages that would best go from our heads to our health get lost. In an effort to change that I’ve posted an infographic on breast cancer. It’s a different way of looking at what may be old information.
My hope is that you will not only look but act — if you’re young make sure the older women in your life see and know the facts; if you’re older make sure you are regularly screened; if you’re a survivor, share your story! We need to hear it.
Make October more than pink ribbons – make it action!
