Wellness Wisdom – Breast Cancer Awareness

October 17, 2023
Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Written by Cheryl Clay

Breast Cancer Awareness has come a long way since its inception, evolving into a global movement that has saved countless lives. Awareness has led to early detection, treatment, and support for those affected. This month, we celebrate the Victories achieved in breast cancer treatments and emphasize the importance of continued efforts!

The first symptoms of breast cancer are usually an area of thickened tissue in the breast or a lump in the breast or in an armpit. Other symptoms include a pain in the armpits or breast.

A mammogram Is a screening test for breast cancer and should be done yearly in all women 40 and older. A diagnosis of breast cancer early, is shown to be easier to treat and more likely lead to recovery.

The pink ribbon symbolizes breast cancer awareness and a stand in solidarity with those affected. It has become a universal symbol, unifying individuals worldwide in the fight against breast cancer. We salute the survivors, pray with the fighters, and honor the memories of the those who God blessed with new life!

As we look to the future, let us remember that our Victories in breast cancer awareness are not just milestones but stepping stones towards a world where this disease no longer poses a threat to our loved ones.

Be healthy! Be well!
