10 impactful ways to champion Breast Cancer Awareness Month every day

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is observed in October each year to raise awareness for the disease, promote early detection and support those affected by it.

Though October is regarded as awareness month, the work, support and need for a cure doesn’t end there.

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer is a form of cancer that originates in the cells of the breast and is more prevalent in women, although it can also affect men. Typically, it initiates in the milk ducts or glands responsible for milk production; however, it may also arise in the breast’s connective tissue or other regions within the breast.

While the precise cause of breast cancer is not fully understood, it is thought to be the outcome of a complex interplay of genetic, hormonal, environmental and lifestyle factors.

10. Promote healthy living: Encourage a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise, a balanced diet and limited alcohol intake because these can reduce the risk of breast cancer.
