October is the annual Breast cancer Awareness Month, which is designed to campaign and bring awareness to the disease. Most women are aware of breast cancer, but others forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. Although we have made a lot of progress we still have a long way to go. But with the help of everyone around the world we as a nation can fight this disease together.

On the other hand, Cancer Treatment Centers Of America create personalized treatment plans for breast cancer diagnosis and needs. “A breast cancer diagnosis is life-changing. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), we’re here to help you and your loved ones make a more informed treatment decision,” said, CTCA.

Every breast cancer is different and requires a personalized approach. Once more people utilize their resources the easier the disease can be detected. At home self exams, Yearly and mammograms are very resourceful for younger and older women.

Women’s health is very important. Each and every day women are dying because of cancerous diseases that can be prevented if enough awareness is exploited. Every 2 minutes, there is a new breast cancer diagnosis. Every 14 minutes, a life is lost to the disease.

Over 40,000 people will die this year; about 400 of them will be men, 85% of all diagnoses have no family history. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women between ages 40 and 55.

The statistics about Breast Caner give me hope and courage to continue to help myself and others who are fighting this disease and trying to prevent it as well.

Spread awareness about Breast Cancer the more you know the better.
