“Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.
The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is a collaboration of national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services.
Since its inception more than 25 years ago, NBCAM has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on breast cancer. NBCAM recognizes that, although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. Today, we remain dedicated to educating and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health.
Although October is designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, NBCAM is dedicated to raising awareness and educating individuals about breast cancer throughout the year. We encourage you to regularly visit these sites to learn more about breast cancer, breast health, and the latest research developments. Click on any of the websites below for more information.”
Many of us may be suffering of things, others may not know about. That is the hardest. That is the toughest fight. We gotta fight ourselves, the feeling of giving up. But we shouldn’t.
I’m thanking God for not giving me this kind of illness and I’m thanking God for not giving this to my close people either.
However, I have friends who have experienced this and I know it’s not a pleasant feeling. Therefore, in order to support this and to raise awareness I’ve decided to add a pink ribbon to my blog.
Whoever wants to do this too, here’s the link: Pink for October.
“Whoever said winning isn’t everything, obviously wasn’t fighting breast cancer.”
