Today marks the beginning of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As healthcare professionals, we all know the importance of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and elevating the national dialogue on breast cancer—because while many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. While there are different treatment options, a cure has yet to be found.
The campaign for early detection has been extremely successful and awareness is the key to prevention. For more than 25 years, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has educated and empowered women to take charge of their own breast health by practicing regular self-exams to identify any changes, scheduling regular visits and annual mammograms with their healthcare providers, adhering to prescribed treatment, and knowing the facts about recurrence.
Chances are you know at least one person who is currently fighting breast cancer or is in remission who will appreciate the support. So be sure to share your ongoing commitment for the search for a cure to breast cancer. We even have an entire section of scrubs and accessories dedicated to the cause.
