Wear the Pink Ribbons for October – the Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is marked down in calendars across the world as the Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This means that in October, everyone shall focus their efforts on raising awareness for this disease.
Why? Because there are millions new cases and hundreds of thousands of deaths from breast cancer each year and together we can prevent it.  Breast cancer is by far the most common cancer in women worldwide. The adoption of western lifestyle has been shown to increase the risk of this disease in women across the world. Science and Medicine doesn’t have enough proof on the causes of breast cancer yet, but the the general knowledge is that early detection remains the basis of breast cancer control. When breast cancer is detected early, and if adequate diagnosis and treatment are provided, there is a good chance that breast cancer can be cured. If detected late, however, curative treatment is often no longer an option. We can save lives!

What can we do?
We can wear the pink ribbon and encourage everyone around us to wear it to.
The pink ribbon is a great conversation starter on the theme, thus creating plenty opportunities for chat, advice, sharing knowledge and stories and ultimately increase awareness, prompt action, such as a visit to the doctor and  ultimately beat the breast cancer.
This is why, every self respecting business on the High Street or even the little “corner shop” should have a basket on their counter full of the adorable and mighty pink ribbons. Give them away to your customers or sell them to raise funds for a local or global breast cancer charity. A little pink ribbon this goes as far as saving a life!
