October is when we welcome fall. Usually with pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween decorations. It’s also the time that we talk about, and hopefully donate, to Breast Cancer Awareness.

For women, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer and is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths among women, according to the CDC. 

The goal of Breast Cancer Awareness month is to raise attention and support for women across the world suffering from this devastating disease. Each year there are about 1.38 million new cases so it’s vital to know what symptoms to look out for and when to be tested.

Being proactive with your health can be empowering and prevent many diseases and cancers, such as breast cancer. Early diagnosis of cancer typically increases the likelihood of successful treatment.

October is the perfect time to talk to Breast Cancer Awareness with people and spread support. You can host or attend a virtual or real fundraiser, make a one-time or ongoing donation, or simply spread the word on social media. The MEGAComfort team has banded together to wear pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. When the whole team wears pink, it’s a great conversation starter to discuss this important topic.

Getting involved can be simple. How are you going to spread support for Breast Cancer Awareness month?
