October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. However, the fight against breast cancer doesn't begin or end in October! Raising awareness is a year-round job.
Here are some of the facts:
*1 in 8 will be struck by the disease at some point in their life.
*More than 70% will have no identifiable risk factors.
*Getting fewer than 6 hours of sleep can lead to low grade inflammation which may be linked to cancer.
*Early detection saves lives!
*Being active at least 10 hours/week improves your odds by 30 %
