Breast Cancer Awareness Month is Here

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is Here

With October rolling around, that means Breast Cancer Awareness Month is here too. With many families affected by breast cancer today, we remember that the fight against breast cancer isn’t over.

Close to 2.3 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer and 685,000 lost their lives worldwide just in 2020. It’s a disease that keeps rising in numbers which means we need to keep spreading awareness. According to Dr. Will Dobie, a Lead Radiologist at the Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Breast Center, 1 in 8 women will eventually develop breast cancer, so it’s important that we do research and fund for research.

As well as wearing pink like many athletes do during the month of October, everyone can make an impact in spreading awareness, whether that’s educating yourself about it or sharing your experiences with breast cancer or breast cancer in your family.

I know many students and staff, including me, have loved ones who’ve been affected by breast cancer. We would like to connect with our school about this topic, so if you have had experiences with breast cancer or if it has affected your family please consider filling out the form below so we can learn more about it and possibly interview you.
