As I mentioned in a previous post, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and P&G wants to let everyone know the importance of Early Detection.

Here’s a few facts about breast cancer (according to cancer.org)

-One in 8 women with get breast cancer in her lifetime. 

-Latinas and African American Women have higher incidences of Breast Cancer than Caucasian women

-About 39,620 women will die from breast cancer in 2013 – This is a very alarming number

Although there is no known way to prevent Breast Cancer, your best defense is Early Detection. In fact, The earlier breast cancer is detected, the higher the survival rate.  When detected during the early stage – the five year survival rate is 98 percent. 

This year, the P&G Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign has partnered with The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to not only educate women, but also the men in their lives, about the importance of early detection. P&G will donate $500,000 to the NBCF which will help save lives.

It is important to get screened every year and also learn to check your breasts for any lumps. It takes a few seconds every day and it could really make a difference. Be aware of your body and don’t miss any checkups.

Click on over here to learn more about the importance of Early Detection from P&G Employees and also learn their stories. You will be inspired.

Together with P&G we can help save lives by spreading the word about the importance of Early Detection, regular screenings and self check ups.
