October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Celebrity Baby Trends is committed to raising awareness about this important cause.
Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. Sadly, about one in eight women born in the United States will get breast cancer. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer, if it’s found and treated early.
The American Cancer Society recommends that women age 40 to 49 talk with their doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them, and that women age 50 to 74 get a mammogram at least every two years.
The American Cancer Society funds research to help prevent, find and treat breast cancer. The organization also is helping women get tested to detect breast cancer earlier, and helping them understand their treatment options as well as how to cope with the physical and emotional side effects.
When Joan Lunden, 64, was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in June, the journalist, author and television host announced the devastating news of her diagnosis to fellow cancer survivor Robin Roberts on the ABC morning show.
One week after finishing her first chemo treatment, the mother of seven and health advocate decided it was time to take pride in her resulting hair loss with the intent to empower others. Joan chose to be photographed for PEOPLE Magazine‘s cover without the wig she usually wears.
Like Joan, good friend of Rachel Florio-Urso and the CBT team, Alexandra Wallace-Currie, also had to cope with breast cancer. Now thankfully cancer-free, Alex has turned her personal tragedy and a talent and love of knitting into a passionate commitment to help others. With A Little Square, a retail shop in Fairfield, CT, and The Pink Pom-Pom Project (PPPP), a crafting for emotional therapy initiative she launched, Alex has several successful charity programs.
Like both Joan and Alex, we can all stand up to this monstrous disease. Through the American Cancer Society Making Strides campaign, a nationwide celebration of survivorship and fund-raising, we can join the fight to end breast cancer. Millions of people in more than 300 communities will spend a few hours of their time this month at one of these non-competitive walking events to help bring a lifetime of change to people facing breast cancer. Check out the Making Strides website for an event near you, so you can walk or support a walker.
