Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Every year, the month of October is observed for National Breast Cancer Awareness in order to shine a light on the disease and encourage early detection.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) was founded in October of 1985 and was aimed to promote mammography which is the most effective tool in the fight against breast cancer. This yearly international health campaign is organized by breast cancer charities every October to raise awareness of the disease and increase funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and one day, a cure. NBCAM drives to educate the public about the importance of early screening, testing, and more.
