Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Beyond October

NC091_BreastCancer

While October is sure to draw memories of trick-or-treaters and costumes for many, the last quarter-century has seen October earn a distinction on the calendar for a completely different reason – as it’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Organizations all across the country, including the American Cancer Society, The Oncology Nursing Society, Prevent Cancer Foundation and Susan G. Komen for the Cure, are joining together to turn the spotlight on breast cancer awareness, support and prevention.

With an estimated 1 in 8 U.S. women developing invasive breast cancer in their lifetime, this devastating disease more than warrants the nation’s collective attention – and you can continue to support the cause well past October.

Beyond the startling 1-in-8 figure, there are a number of other breast cancer facts and statistics you should be aware of:

  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women
  • It’s estimated that in 2013 there will be 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women and 39,620 breast cancer deaths
  • 2013 will see 2,240 cases of invasive breast cancer in men and 410 breast cancer deaths
  • The majority of breast cancers, 65%, occur in women without any family history
  • Most breast cancers are discovered after the age of 50

So how can you get involved in the month-long observance, and even continue to show support throughout the year?

Wear Pink: Supporters, survivors and family members alike rally behind the cause and the color with a “Go Pink!” cry all October. From the NASCAR track and football field to packs of motorcycles and fire stations everywhere, people all over the country are going pink for breast cancer awareness in October.

Donate: Organizations like Susan G. Komen and the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) are always looking for donations from individuals happy to join in their efforts to help women battling breast cancer.

Volunteer: Between NBCF’s Virtual Volunteer and Outreach Volunteer programs, the various Avon Walks for Breast Cancer and the Susan G. Komen 3-Day, there’s no shortage of ways you can actively show your support for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
