October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s time to lay down some facts: according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, about one in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Statistically speaking, it’s likely that even if we don’t end up having breast cancer ourselves, we’ll know someone who has been affected by it somehow. Fortunately, we’re now more equipped than ever to fight breast cancer, and one of the best ways to beat this disease is through early detection. During the month of October, we raise awareness and show support for cancer patients by wearing pink – I’m sure you’ve seen the pink ribbon symbol around before!
