Many of us have been touched by breast cancer, though loved ones, friends, or ourselves. Overcoming the initial shock, emotions, pain, and uncertainty is at times overwhelming.
This annual campaign increases awareness of the disease and reminds women to take steps to make a plan to detect the disease in the early stages.
October’s my favorite month to watch NFL games. Players in their pink shoes, belts, gloves, or socks remind me every year to make an appointment for my mammogram. Since I can’t always rely on my love of football to remind me, this year I decided to create an Early Detection Plan.
It took 3 minutes to sign up and I will receive reminders for self breast exams, clinical breast exams, and, since I turned 40, mammograms.
There are many individuals and groups who support the National Breast Cancer Foundation besides the NFL.
If you’re in need of a belt, or just want to show support, C4 has partnered with NBCF for this year’s #Care4thecause fundraiser.
