How Can I Promote Breast Cancer Awareness?
Here’s How You Can Make a Difference in Your Community
Perhaps you know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer can start from a woman’s milk ducts, the glands that produce milk, and in other breast tissues.
Did you know that next to skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women? The latest U.S. breast cancer statistics show that one in eight American women, or about 12% of the country’s female population, is expected to develop invasive breast cancer within her lifetime. At the start of 2020 alone, it was estimated that roughly 42,170 women would lose their lives to the disease.
Ways You Can Promote Breast Cancer Awareness
Contrary to what some people may think, some types of breast cancer don’t cause a visible lump in the patient’s breast. Sometimes, the lumps can only be detected through screening mammograms way before the patient gets to feel the tumor or experience its symptoms. Since breast cancer is most treatable in its earliest stages, awareness of the disease and the importance of early detection via screening is a must.
Knowing this, you can make a difference in your community by spreading awareness and educating others about breast cancer. Have a look at how you can do this:
1. Learn all you can about breast cancer.
Breast cancer can affect anyone. It’s best to educate yourself about your risks of developing the disease because this can aid in early detection and treatment. Encourage your loved ones who may be in the high-risk group to check for breast abnormalities and to get mammograms.
2. Get your pink outfit ready!
Did you know that the pink ribbon is the international symbol for breast cancer? If you want to attract attention and support for breast cancer awareness, add a touch of pink to your outfit, take a photo of yourself, and post it on your favorite social media platform. While you’re at it, encourage your family and friends to get their pink outfits ready as well!
3. Offer to help someone who has breast cancer.
If you know someone who’s battling breast cancer, try to find a way to make life easier for them — even if they don’t ask for help. Ask if they need someone to help prepare their meals, mow their lawn, drive them to their next doctor’s appointment, or walk their dog.
