BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
Advanced Furnace & Air Duct Cleaning Inc. supports breast cancer awareness month, as well as all women in their fight for a cure for breast cancer. We are donating $10.00 for every air duct cleaning we complete in the month of October to the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
First of all, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women. This stat equates to over 252,710 being diagnosed and more than 40,500 lives lost to this dreadful disease. Although rare, about 2,190 men are diagnosed each year with breast cancer.
The good news to share is that there are over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors alive in the USA today. It is, however, the most common cancer among women world-wide. Also, having a risk factor does not mean that a woman will get breast cancer. 60 to 70% of women with breast cancer have no connection to the risk factors.
Raise Your Awareness!
Therefore, it is important to learn how to properly perform monthly breast exams as early detection is key. If you notice any changes in your breasts, be sure to talk to your healthcare professional. Tenderness, a lump, skin changes such as dimpling or thickening, texture changes like enlarged pores, a clear or any discharge from the nipple must be reported as soon as possible. Also remember, all lumps are not cancerous so don’t let fear prevent you from proper medical treatment. Read more on detecting breast cancer on the American Cancer Society or the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Education could save your life!
