Pam Scott’s sister missed her mammogram appointment and put off rescheduling it. Most women have done this with their mammograms or annual well-checks. We tell ourselves we’re too busy, the kids need us that day, it’s really not that important, we’ll go next month, or (more honestly), there pretty much isn’t anything we want to do less that. So we skip it.
People often associate breast cancer with a secondary diagnosis: lymphedema. Not everyone who has lived with breast cancer will develop lymphedema, and nowhere near everyone with lymphedema has (or has had) breast cancer. In fact, although breast cancer treatment (radiation) is the leading cause of lymphedema in the United States, worldwide it is much more common for people to develop lymphedema due to a parasitic infection. So let's cover the basics first.
It's October, and that means Halloween, haunted houses, fall leaf piles, pumpkin spice lattes and PINK. Lots of pink. Pink everywhere. Why? Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and most unfortunately, it seems just about everyone knows someone (or is the someone) who has or has had breast cancer. It's no surprise, given that one in eight women will have breast cancer in her lifetime. One in every eight.
Our October Story of Hope is brought to you by a special customer of ours, Veronica. Veronica courageously battled breast cancer in 2008 and wanted to share her story with you.
Breast cancer awareness month is now celebrating it's 25th year and the support is continuing to grow. The most recognizable symbol of support is the pink ribbon. The pink ribbon was first given out in 1991 during a Susan G. Komen race in New York City. It was a year later when the NBCAMF (National Breast Awareness Month Foundation) adopted the ribbon as it's official symbol. Now, you can not only wear a pink ribbon to show your support, but you can also purchase items from kitchen appliances to clothing as well as office supplies and medical jewelry that use the color pink in the design to show support.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Lauren's Hope is proud to promote awareness by featuring at least 1 item that promotes Breast Cancer awareness each Free Stuff Friday this month!
Show your support and bring awareness to your cause! Our beautiful awareness medical alert bracelets are a fashionable piece of medical alert jewelry that also serves as an awareness bracelet. Each awareness medical alert bracelet has a charm and the colors that represent the cause you are supporting.
