October. The beginning of fall. Cooler weather. Football season. Baseball playoffs. Pumpkin spice delicacies in full array at your favorite coffee house (and elsewhere!). Halloween just around the corner. Ubiquitous pink ribbons.
Yes, it’s that time of year… Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Women are advised to schedule mammograms. (A radiation-free alternative is thermography.)
If you are not familiar with thermography, it is definitely worth taking time to research.) We hear all of the heartbreaking statistics, and the fact is breast cancer is likely to impact the lives of most people…whether it’s you or a loved one. According to the World Cancer Research Fund and American Institute for Cancer Research, worldwide “Breast cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer in women and the second most common cancer overall.” During October, companies and sports leagues use significant campaigns to highlight breast cancer awareness and help fund research…a worthy and important goal, as we seek breakthroughs in treatment, prevention, and ideally a cure.
