October is BreastCancer Awareness Month: How are you making a difference?#B.Brave

Cancer is No question one of the Most deadliest, fastest progressing diseases today! Affecting not only our breast in women and men, but also skin, brain, eyes, mouth, ovaries, liver, throats etc. And if undetected will in most cases be deadly! While there are some things we can do as far as health wise to take preventative measures , such as no smoking, not eating certain foods, exercise etc, we all know that sometimes it is way beyond our control. While we should not just honor our survivors, victims etc in only October, this month has been designated to bring awareness as a whole. Most people think that the fight for a cure is only financial wise. While it is indeed a huge part of it, Its not the only cure we are looking for. Finding a cure is also about bringing more awareness to people about the deadly disease as well as providing support and educating tools to help prevent the disease as well as catch the disease in early enough detection to where it is still treatable. Earlier this year i wrote a post about the Brave Steps that Actress Angelina Jolie took to prevent developing the disease based on her genetics( see http://officialtatoocampaign.com/2013/05/15/angelina-jolies-brave-decision-to-prevent-breast-cancer-double-mastectomyb-michaverys-thoughts/), and while many of us may not take a measure this drastic, it is still imperative that we do the necessary steps to prevent or diagnose it in it’s early stages so it can be treated and not spread. Statistics are real,: An estimated 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the US during 2013; about 2,240 new cases are expected in men. Excluding cancers of the skin, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women.An estimated 40,030 breast cancer deaths (39,620 women, 410 men) are expected in 2013. Breast cancer ranks second as a cause of cancer death in women (after lung cancer).
Death rates for breast cancer have steadily decreased in women since 1989, with larger decreases in younger women; from 2005 to 2009, rates decreased 3.0% per year in women younger than 50 and 2.0% per year in women 50 and older. The decrease in breast
cancer death rates represents progress in earlier detection, improved treatment, and possibly decreased incidence as a result of declining use of MHT(MENOPAUSAL HORMONE THERAPY). We have a responsibility, we must bring awareness and enforce early detection and treatment. For more information about how you can contribute and assist with bringing awareness go to (see below).
