October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Monday, 23 October 2023
And around 1000 young women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, equivalent to about 3 young women each day.
These statistics are powerful reminders of why early detection, education, and support are crucial.
🌺 Here's how you can make a difference:
Self-Exams: Regular self-exams can save lives. Take a few minutes to check yourself for any unusual changes in your breasts.
Mammograms: If you're over 40 or have a family history, schedule your mammogram. Early detection is key!
Support: Share stories of survivors, and provide encouragement to those currently fighting this battle. Your words can be a source of strength.
Donate: Consider making a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, or local organisations like Friends In Common. Every contribution helps in the fight against this disease.
🎀 Let's turn the world pink this October and show our support for those affected by breast cancer. Together, we can make a difference! 💪💕
