Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Spreading Awareness Through Silver

October brings about a number of changes in the country. Leaves start to turn and fall, temperatures get cooler, pumpkin-spiced everything hits the shelves everywhere, and our awareness involving breast cancer sharpens just a little bit more. Pink shows up everywhere: on clothes, shoes, in the media, on the NFL’s jerseys and football fields, across a number of platforms, and so on. Everyone, unless living under a rock, will see or hear the rumblings of breast cancer awareness.

Among most cancers, individuals are usually most familiar with breast cancer. Why? One in eight women will be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime and it is the second leading cause of cancer death among women according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Most commonly diagnosed in women, breast cancer can be found in men but it is rarer. It is estimated that over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are living in the United States today.

The month of October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness month and has become a global campaign over the years to raise awareness for the disease that affects so many women. Events such as 5K walks/runs, awareness high school and college games across the country, and charity events take place to spread the word about early detection, diagnosis, stages of the horrific disease, and survivorship. There are numerous organizations committed to fighting the disease and of course, one of the most popular ways to bring about awareness is with the help of awareness ribbons themselves.
