October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October 19th, 2019 · Books, City Library, Main Branch

Everyone knows that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If the explosions of pink ribbons didn’t clue you in, maybe the other pink branding from your favorite retail or coffee chain may have piqued your interest.

You may be wondering why it matters to you. Maybe you were born male, and you think you aren’t in danger. Well, did you know that there were about 2,190 men in the US that developed breast cancer this year?

Maybe you think you are safe because you don’t have a family history of breast cancer. Well, you might be interested to know that 75% of women with breast cancer have no family history, and less than 10% have a known gene mutation that increases risk.

The truth is that breast cancer still affects a large number of people in the United States. 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer, every year; and despite advances in research, 41,760 women are expected to die in 2019 from breast cancer.

October isn’t just your yearly reminder to self-check.  It’s a month-long campaign to raise funds for life-saving research to save as many people as we possibly can.

So, this October, donate, research, or get inspired, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
