October Breast Cancer Awareness Month!October 17, 2019
October Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is taking place during the month of October, dedicated to the fight against breast cancer.
In the world, 1 in 8 women is at risk of developing breast cancer.
This event, across the world, helps to increase attention and support for the awareness, early detection and treatment as well as palliative care of this disease.
During this month, various worldwide charities set up different actions to inform and raise the awareness of breast cancer.
Pink is the global symbol for breast cancer.
If you want to discover the actions lead by some charities in France and in the United States of America:
Why the pink color?
Mrs. Evelyn H.Lauder, Vice President of Estee Lauder Companies during the 90th, in collaboration with Alexandra Penney from a magazine dedicated to women health, created the Pink Ribbon which is today the worldwide symbol of the fight against breast cancer.
