As we welcome November, it’s important to remember that Breast Cancer Awareness Month should be every month.
Even two girls, ages 12 and 13, understood the importance of breast cancer awareness when they challenged the school’s band on the, now popular, I (heart) Boobies! bracelets.
The case was taken all the way to the Supreme Court, who agreed that the bracelets weren’t disruptive but supportive.
Get a mammogram or breast MRI to keep yourself informed, and be sure to ask your doctor to walk you through it. There’s a lot to consider when it comes to women’s health: density, history, and age, for examples.
Remember that no one’s a better judge than you, so do self-checks as well.
It’s not just October.
