National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Every year in October, thousands of international and local organizations gather to celebrate the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Discount Medical Supplies joins the efforts of spreading the word in this global campaign.
In the United States 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with a form of breast cancer in their lifetime. Around the world there are 1.38 million new cases each year and around 458,000 deaths from this terrible disease. Many research projects and investigations are still rushing to find a cure for this cancer and save many of women and men around the world.
According to the World Health Organization, “Early detection to improve breast cancer outcome and survival, remains the cornerstone of breast cancer control”. While the cure is found, it is vital for every woman to do constant checkups on their breast to look for any changes that might be a clue to something more serious and communicate it immediately to their doctor.
It can be a life changing shock, but as many breast cancer patients and survivors agree, there is still hope. Many new treatments are developed each day to fight the disease from spreading. You can find plenty of help and information in many different places online.
