It’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

200BreastCancerRibbonDo you wonder why so much pink is being worn by so many people this month?  I particular enjoy watching football games during this time and seeing big, husky men with pink socks and pink gloves.  It not just a new fashion statement, but a way to join in promoting that fact that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Started 25 years ago, “The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is a collaboration of national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services.”

Read more about this month of getting others to pay attention to an important women’s health issue at the website of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) website.  And be sure to wear pink!
