Breast Cancer Month

It is a time when we are aware of the changing landscape, especially in the rich colors of the outdoors.
Red, crimson, and yellow are the colors of fall, but in October, there is a particular attention to to pink. October is the month recognized nationally to increase breast cancer awareness. Pink is the color that demonstrates awareness and support for breast cancer patients. The landscapes of facilities all over the United States will be turning pink for the month of October.
What we can do to support the awareness?
I saved the lids from yogurts and send them to the national program "Lids for Lives." Each lid converts into money for research.
Breast cancer remains one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers among American women. It is the second-most common cause of cancer-related death in women. Although women are primarily diagnosed with breast cancer, men can be as well.
I will read about women breast cancer facts and learn about it more information. Annuals mammograms are an instrument to prevent it and recognize it in early stage.
