I was recently working with a client who was going through a lot of breast surgery and her family was asking how she was doing. She said that she did not know how she was doing, but she believed that she should be able to do something to help herself. She also said that she had to do something to help her daughter, who was a newborn baby. She said, “I am a mother, and this is my first child.
Breast cancer is the leading cause of death among women, causing up to 20,000 deaths a year. This means that if we do nothing, it will be the leading cause of death for women by the age of 65. Fortunately, there are lots of things we can do to help reduce our risk of breast cancer. We all have a lot of things we can do to take care of ourselves and our families.
The big one is breast cancer screenings. Every woman should have a mammogram every year and a breast exam every two years. Even if you don’t have a family history of breast cancer, a mammogram or breast exam can help prevent a breast cancer diagnosis.
Breast cancer is the leading cause of death for women. It doesn’t have to be. We can make a difference with regular mammograms and breast exams.
I know. Breast cancer is scary enough. The fact that I am sharing this list is just another reminder to all of us that we are all important, but it is important to remember that we are not all equally important. We are each responsible for our own health. So it is up to each of us to take care of ourselves, and to educate others about those things that we can do to help ourselves and our families better.
Breast cancer research is huge. It has been over two decades since the first diagnosis was confirmed, and millions of women have been treated for the disease. But there are still many women who are diagnosed with cancer but don’t receive the care or support they need. A key step in the fight against breast cancer is that we need to ensure that those women who survive have the information and support they need to make them feel confident about their bodies and their futures.
We’re all just going to have to get our hair cut, which requires a lot of hair.
To that end, we are offering the first set of breast cancer “health kits” for a price of just $20. These kits will include a comprehensive breast exam kit, a breast cancer awareness booklet, and our new breast cancer knowledge quiz. The kits are meant to help women who have suffered a breast cancer diagnosis to understand their signs, symptoms, treatment options, support, and care packages.
And we’re giving them to women who just got their hair cut. If you’re a woman who just got her hair cut, the breast cancer kit will include an exam kit, a breast cancer booklet (but not the quiz), and a breast cancer knowledge quiz. In fact, we want to do away with the breast cancer knowledge quiz because most women who get their hair cut are so desperate they’ve put off doing it for weeks or months.
It’s a lot easier to get a kit if you don’t want a hair cut. But if its the only way to get the information you need, you might actually be better off trying to get an appointment to have your hair cut.
