Importance of Breast Cancer Awareness
Power of PINK
All women are at risk for developing breast cancer. At present, there is no sure way to prevent breast cancer, which is why regular mammograms and monthly breast self-exams are extremely important. Seventy percent of all breast cancers are found through breast self-exams. Mammography can detect breast cancer up to two years before it is large enough to be felt.
By wearing or using a pink ribbon product, you may just have reminded a woman to take the mammogram or do a breast self-exam or mammogram that she may have been putting off. After all, it could be your sister, mother, daughter or friend who could be at risk. Breast cancer awareness is extremely important.
