Read below for our helpful facts and tips regarding this deadly disease. Knowledge is the first step in winning the fight against cancer:

  • Do your breast self-exam monthly after reaching age 40. If you’re not sure how to do your breast self-exam, use an app on your phone, a computer, or a mobile device to help you. Learn how to perform a breast self-exam and how it benefits you.

 

  • One way to help prevent breast cancer is to make smart choices of food, drink, and exercise so you keep a healthy weight. Keep slim to lower your risk for cancer, especially breast cancer. A healthy diet has lots of benefits.

 

  • Breast cancer is becoming more survivable; especially when found early and treated effectively. More people are surviving this disease. Treatments and detection methods have improved greatly, making the journey through breast cancer more bearable. To find out more about breast cancer treatments, you can CLICK HERE.
