Serious Talk
Breast Cancer is serious business, it doesn't care who it affects! So we must take action and fight the attacks against our body. Early detection is important in decreasing your chances of developing it and increases your chances of treating it! If your family has any history of Breast Cancer start early detection in your 20's is best! Women in your 20's don't sit back and think for a second that you want get it...see your doctor regularly! Ladies we are stronger than we think so, Let's fight like a GIRL!

  • About 40,000 women in the U.S. were expected to die in 2014 from breast cancer, though death rates have been decreasing since 1989 — with larger decreases in women under 50. These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advances, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness.
  • A woman’s risk of breast cancer approximately doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. About 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it.
  • The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older). *source breastcancer.org*
Lately in my own surroundings I have heard of more and more women being diagnosed! Years ago I've rarely heard of anyone getting it! Friends that I have known for years suddenly I hear that one of their family members have been diagnosed! Even one of my employees that I work with have unfortunately been diagnosed! Early detection is key to winning this battle ladies. Don't take Breast Cancer lightly! Get in the know, learn more about it, know the risk factors, learn how to detect for breast cancer in yourself!
