Creative Ways To Do Pink Beauty For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Mammograms are safe and the most effective screening tool used to find breast cancer, finding cancers at the earlier stages, according to Susan G. Komen For the Cure.

Muscatine Resident Rhonda Larson is an advocate for breast cancer awareness and encourages women ages forty to forty-five or older who are at average risk for breast cancer to get their annual mammogram. Many women who have survived breast cancer are unable to go without a bra as they need it to hold their prosthesis after surgery.

The original event is known as "BRA Day" was started by Toronto plastic surgeon Dr Mitchell Brown.

"Nearly 12,000 women and 80 men every year in the United Kingdom die from breast cancer but with improvements in screening, treatment and raised awareness, this is a fraction of what it was decades ago".

Supporters raise money to help the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking research and provide patient services.

Pink is back, along with the month of October when the nation identifies with those impacted by breast cancer. The event was adopted in the U.S.in 2012 and more women have come to accept the day. Several types of radiation do affect the chest and cause breast cancer, and men have a larger chance of getting this.

"We are excited to be a part of the Kinabalu Pink Ribbon campaign in educating women on the importance of early detection and treatment".

"This gives us a way to show it while we are in uniform".
