Resources for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Ashley Wyckoff, Bachelor of Science

Why do we recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Most people are familiar with breast cancer and may even know someone who has had it. However, many people may not realize that healthy lifestyle choices may help reduce breast cancer risk. That is why each October different organizations work to educate the public about breast cancer. They have made this effort since the first organized weeklong event occurred in October 1985. Some of the organizations that participate in Breast Cancer Awareness Month are the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.®, Wear it Pink and the American Cancer Society®.


Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a time to remember those who fought the battle with cancer, educate the public about the disease, and raise money for research so we can finally end the war with breast cancer. For more information, check out some of our previous articles:
