OCTOBER is PINK!!! Wear It!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.

Tell the women you love, Yourself included, to get a Mammogram, support the many causes, go for a BCAM walk, donate!  Get your coworkers, friends, family and everyone involved.

CHECK OUT HERSCAN, Breast Ultrasound Screening, a no-radiation alternative to a regular mammogram! Insurance doesn’t pay for it – about $200, but the detection rate is much higher… 97%!

PINK DAYS

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month each October, people raise money by organizing activities such as theme parties or a “pink day” (when employees wear pink clothing or accessories) at work. The money raised is donated to the organizers’ choice of breast cancer care or research programs. This effort is international, an increasingly prominent “pink day” is Global Pink Hijab Day celebrated by many to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer.

National Football League

During the month of October, the National Football League promotes breast cancer awareness by incorporating pink on its websites, graphics, and advertisements. Players also show support by wearing pink gloves, cleats, captains patches, and other apparel during games. I love this … it is so very noticeable and helps with awareness.

October themes are here! Days to Remember!
