October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a global campaign that aims to bring awareness to women’s cancers and educate people on the importance of mammograms for the early detection of breast cancer.

Since the campaign first began in 1985, advances in research, medicine and treatment mean more women than ever are beating breast cancer; today more than eight out of ten people survive breast cancer beyond five years.

But there’s still vital work to be done: from fundraising to education, now is the time to get involved and learn more about the signs and symptoms of breast cancer – you just might help save a life.
