Breast Cancer Awareness Month

More than 20 years ago, the month of October was dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and the importance of early detection. As we all know, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States and according to the American Cancer Society, it's estimated that about 178,480 women in the US will be found to have invasive breast cancer in 2007. With so many people affected by this disease, it's important to raise awareness and become as educated as possible. There are so many great resources out there and here are just a few websites to help you locate any information you might need.

  • National Breast Cancer Awareness Month: More than just one month a year, the NBCAM has a website with breaking news on breast cancer, lists of patient services, and basic as well as detailed information on the disease.
  • American Cancer Society: The ACS is dedicated to educating women on how to reduce their risk of developing the disease and finding the best options for treating breast cancer. They believe in early detection and recommend that all women over 40 receive an annual mammogram. The ACS website is loaded with information and they have 24 hour telephone service to offer the comfort of live support and to answer questions about cancer, link callers with resources in their communities, and provide information on local events (1-800-ACS-2345).

  • Susan G. Komen for the Cure: Founded by Komen's sister, this foundation is dedicated to curing breast cancer at every stage - funding research on the causes and possible cures, as well as helping ease the pain and anxiety for those diagnosed with the disease and their families. You can help raise funds for research by participating in the 3 Day Event. It is a three day, 60 mile walk that takes place in major cities all over the country throughout the summer and fall. If you missed the walk this year, you can always aim for next year.
  • National Breast Cancer Foundation: NBCF's mission is to provide educational programs and funding for free mammograms to women who cannot afford them, as well as provide online resources for women battling breast cancer.
  • If shopping to support breast cancer research seems more your speed than walking 60 miles, Fab has the website for you!

These pink campaigns are nothing but scams... Big corporations playing on the sheep of our society who fall in line without questioning a thing.. BAAAA I am sure all the big wigs of these corproations are laughing all the way to the bank at the stupid people buying into this scam..these big corporations are lining their pockets with money with pink this and pink that because the sheep are buying into it.. And have they cured it yet? If you look.. Most of the time these "pink" items are knocked up a couple dollars.. If people actually took the time to think and read they'd look at the fine print and realize that generally there is being a tiny little bit donated to charity and the rest is lining the big wigs pockets.. capitalism at its best.. This is why you will never get massive colon cancer or other cancer assistance.. because men aren't emotional buyers like women..And quite honestly they wouldn't go gaga over pink You are all suckers for buying into this ... BAAAA
