Shop Pink: Breast Cancer Awareness

BCA

October, sometimes referred to as ‘Pinktober’, is known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  With a 1 in 8 probability of women developing breast cancer in their lifetime, early detection is key.  This can be achieved through:

  • Monthly breast self-exams
  • Routine clinical exams and mammograms
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Staying physically active
  • Eating fruits and vegetables
  • Not smoking
  • Limiting alcohol consumption

For more information, consult with your physician and you can visit nationalbreastcancer.org for additional information.
