We all want to live a healthy and happy life. Getting a diagnosis like cancer is never easy, not on the patient and certainly not on the family. Breast cancer can go undetected so an early diagnosis will make a significant difference in the battle with cancer.
Breast cancer is one of the most frequent types of cancer among women. The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we need to make as many women as possible aware of this and encourage them to learn how to see signs that may need to be investigated. Breast cancer can be cured if it is caught in an early stage of development.
We encourage you to be breast aware and check your breasts regularly. Check in with your friends and encourage them to do the same. Should an abnormality occur, it will be identified early and the treatment outcome a lot more positive.
Many Irish charities provide services and support that make sure that nobody in Ireland must face cancer alone. Any woman can end up in a situation like this, a friend, sister, co-worker, indeed any one of us.
How else can you help? If you or someone you know has been affected by breast cancer, spread power and encouragement to other women by telling the story. How did you feel? How did you find the strength to fight? Let others know there is life after cancer and that this illness can be defeated. Successful stories have a positive impact on those who are currently fighting breast cancer and can give them much-needed hope.
Do not forget to educate yourself about breast cancer. Knowing the early symptoms and checking your breasts are some of the best ways to stay on the safe side. Also, encourage other women to learn more about this. Strong women are not afraid to take matters into their own hands. Be aware, be prepared, and get screened. Through research survival rates have increased to 85% in Ireland.
This October join others to raise awareness of breast cancer and support one of the many charities in Ireland that continue to research and support women.
