Breast Cancer Early Detection App

Posted by


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an
annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation reminds us that while most people
are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan
to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do
the same.

When breast cancer is detected early, at a localized stage, the survival rate is 98%.  Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams, and scheduling regular clinical breast exams and mammograms.

An Early Detection Plan enables you to be proactive about your health by reminding you to perform routine breast self-exams and to schedule clinical breast exams and mammograms, depending on your age and health history.

Through the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s Early Detection Plan, you can select the reminder options that work best for you, including email alerts, calendar reminders, text messages or downloading a PDF of your plan.

Whether it's donating a portion of sales, or participating as a team in a local fundraising event, many companies are showing their social responsibility with Breast Cancer Awareness Programs.

It's not just health care organizations, companies are using awareness bracelets to start a conversation, using gifts with a symbol to remind people to take action, and offering Breast Care Self Exam Post up cards to help educate.
