Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women.
The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. Using mammograms to screen for breast cancer can help find it early when it’s easier to treat.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.
With this and other National Health Observances toolkits offered on healthfinder.gov, we’ve made it easier for you to make a difference. The toolkits provide resources for organizations like schools, healthcare providers, health departments, and more to raise awareness about critical public health issues, like the importance of early detection of breast cancer.
This toolkit is full of ideas to help you take action today. For example:
- Share these questions for the doctor about getting a mammogram.
- Add information about breast cancer screening to your newsletter.
- Tweet about National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
- Add this Web badge to your website.
By raising awareness about breast cancer, we can all work together to help women stay healthy.
