Welcome to October! At Komen for the Cure we celebrate with PINK for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Except for skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, but it can be successfully treated. Screening tests can find cancer early, when it’s most treatable. Susan G. Komen for the Cure recommends that you:
- know your risk
- get screened
- know what is normal for you
- make healthy lifestyle choices
Information about breast cancer is available at www.komen.org. Please visit the section on Understanding Breast Cancer — take the time to educate yourself, to know what to do when a friend is diagnosed or to be inspired by survivor stories. Learn by watching the videos. Just learn, so you can take care of yourself.
If you want to speak with someone, 1-877 GO KOMEN (1-877-465-6636) is the resource for any and all things relating to breast health, breast cancer and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
