In January 2019, there were over 3.1 million women in the United States who were undergoing treatment for breast cancer or who had already finished treatment. In our series for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we have already discussed breast cancer prevention and what women can do to lower their likelihood of developing breast cancer. However, it is also crucial to discuss life after breast cancer. Breast cancer affects many women every year and recovery can be a tough and stressful time.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Small Steps to Help Prevent Breast Cancer

October is breast cancer awareness month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer often touches our lives in many ways, whether it is through the diagnosis of a friend, family member, or our own personal experience. Breast cancer death rates have been steadily decreasing since 1989, but there is still a long way to go in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. One in eight women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime and an estimated 40,000 women are expected to die from it each year.
