October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  This is an annual national initiative to educate and fundraise about the disease.

Although this can be a difficult time for many, we thought we would give you a post about three positive things you can do to celebrate life and hope this month on behalf of the cause —

  1. Learn about early detection: Go to earlydetectionplan.orgThere are free tools at this site for creating a plan to detect any cancer early.  According to the American Cancer Society —

When breast cancer is detected early, and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 100%.

  1. Educate yourself.  If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with breast cancer, the National Breast Cancer Foundation has a web site dedicated just for you.  There are educational videos, inspirational survival stories, and lots of FAQs.
  2. Get involved with a fundraiser.  You can run/walk in a fundraising event, host an event yourself, and support products that give funds to breast cancer programs.
