October- National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This symbol of a pink ribbon has become very popular all around the country. Some may have seen this and didn’t understand what the symbol all about is; and to those who knows, I hope that you can share that knowledge to someone who needs it, and so that everybody will be aware of this. This is what NBCAM (National Breast Cancer Awareness Month) is all about; being celebrate every month of October to make everybody be aware of the breast cancer that is so common among women, and part of this is to remind the women to have a regular check, including self-breast exam to prevent from having breast cancer in the future.
The NBCAM organization is a partnership of national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to screening services.
Although the NBCAM officially falls every October, yet their campaign runs throughout the year. They are giving away valuable information and resources to the breast cancer patients, survivors, caregivers and to the public. Therefore, every time that you see a pink ribbon symbol, and you happened to be with someone who you thought is not aware of its meaning, you might as well explain to the person about the symbol, and who knows, that maybe you are saving somebody.
