Welcome to 31 Days of Pink, Touro Infirmary’s movement to raise breast health awareness every day of October, during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
A disease that affects approximately one in eight women in the United States during her lifetime, breast cancer is personal to each of us. Louisiana has one of the highest death rates from breast cancer in the nation and with education about the importance of screening to achieve early detection – we can change that statistic.
Early detection remains the key to beating breast cancer today. When detected early, breast cancer is most treatable. Visit www.31DaysofPink.com and be sure to return to our blog daily throughout October to learn important breast health information, read stories from other women and get a chance to share your story. Each day of October we will post new information to educate our community on the importance of breast screening, early detection, cancer treatment options, cancer support and survivorship. Together, we are fighting to beat this disease affecting one in eight women throughout her lifetime. We hope you’ll join the conversation!
Shop for a Cause this October!
