“Whether you’re a mother or father, or a husband or a son, or a niece or nephew or uncle, breast cancer doesn’t discriminate.” Stephanie McMahon

No word strikes more terror into a person than “cancer”, but over these past few decades, medical advancements have made it possible to detect and treat cancer in its early stages. 

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is celebrated every October. It sheds light on the history of breast cancer while also providing an opportunity to raise money for breast cancer research, diagnosis, and treatment. The primary goal of this month is to promote awareness and offer support for women diagnosed with breast cancer.

On that note, let’s take a look at a few organizations that are doing incredible work raising awareness about breast cancer.

1. The Rose is  taking care of women from all walks of life

Since its inception in 1986, the Rose Center for Breast Health Excellence has assisted over 500,000 breast cancer patients. As the leading nonprofit breast health care organization in southeast Texas, its board-certified radiologists and skilled technical staff serve more than 40,000 women each year.

The Rose ensures that every woman, regardless of her financial situation, has access to screening, diagnostic, and treatment services. Screenings for breast cancer are the most effective weapons in the battle against the disease, which is 98% curable when discovered early.

2. SHARE is changing the lives of women facing breast cancer

SHARE is a public nonprofit dedicated to assisting, educating, and empowering women diagnosed with ovarian, uterine, or breast cancer.

3. National Breast Cancer Foundation is helping women detect cancer at an earlier stage

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) was established in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34. While in the hospital undergoing breast cancer treatments, she became keenly conscious of the lack of information made available to patients.

The goal of the NBCF is to assist and inspire women today by giving assistance and hope to individuals impacted by breast cancer via early diagnosis, education, and support services. 1 in every 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer has no known treatment at the moment, and early detection is essential for survival.
