OCTOBER: THINK PINK

4:21 PM


October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Every year, people,companies and organizations come together for a Pink Campaign to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer. Although most people are aware of Breast Cancer, we sometimes forget that prevention is the best medicine and that Breast Cancer can be prevented or detect early via simple methods.

Most people have been personally affected or know someone that has been affected by Breast Caner and every two minutes a woman is diagnosed. Breast Cancer awareness is extremely important not only because I am woman and I want to work in women's healthcare, but I lost my grandmother when I was six years old because she didn't detect her cancer early enough and didn't receive treatment until the cancer progressed. We wear pink to remember those who have battled breast cancer and to remind women to take care of their bodies and perform routine breast exams. I always think it's important to note that women aren't the only ones that are affected by Breast Cancer, either the women in their lives or men themselves can be affected and we all should be aware!

In today's post,to show my support, I'm wearing pink!
