125441145280Ag9hOctober is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. People all over the world are wearing pink ribbons to honor survivors, remember those lost to the disease, and to support the progress we are making together to defeat breast cancer. It’s also a reminder for women of all ages to be aware of the importance to perform breast self-exams at least once a mont. About 40% of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women performing a regular breast self-exam. If you feel a lump in your breast don’t wait – see a doctor.  Mammograms can also help you to detect cancer.  Finding breast cancer early and treating it are the most important strategies in the fight against it. 

Blogs, websites, networks and social media pages around the world are turning the internet pink to help raise awareness for breast cancer!  It’s our way of helping out and spreading the word about breast cancer.
