Prevention of breast cancer, not just a cure, is the ultimate solution to breast cancer.Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer in women, affecting 1 in 3 women in their lifetime. Breast cancer has many preventable factors, and early detection saves lives.
Hopefully, no one will die of breast cancer. Join our movement for awareness to prevent, early detect, and treat breast cancer, so that no one will die one day from breast cancer.
Screening helps reduce cancer deaths because doctors can catch the disease early. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pledge to take action in protecting your family against breast cancer. After you take the pledge, please post why this is important to you and let us know how your family is responding to your feedback.
