Breast Cancer Awareness Month

pink-ribbon-1October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s an annual campaign to help increase awareness of the deadly disease. Most people have heard of breast cancer and are aware of the dangers, but many forget to take the necessary steps to have a plan to detect the disease early.

About 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.  When you look around at the women in your life, that number is pretty scary.

Early detection is important. Catching it in the early stages of development can drastically improve your chances of survival and easier treatment. Regular screenings, (such as mammograms) are important for every woman.

Almost everyone knows someone who has been diagnosed, and it can effect everyone around them. Harold’s Lighting is a proud supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and encourages everyone to get checked regularly and to live healthily.
