Focus On: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness (263497131)October has been designated as the month to raise awareness about breast cancer throughout the world. Being one of the most common occurring cancers, breast cancer affects millions of people every year. But the good news is that with new and emerging research in the last ten years, it has now become one of the most curable cancers when caught early enough. This improvement in care and in life expectancy has been greatly aided by awareness organizations such as the US National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the UK Breast Cancer Care. In addition, the Pink Ribbon has become synonymous with breast cancer awareness as well as the annual Susan G. Komen 5K Races to help raise money.
