Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast Cancer has hit close to home for me, my mother is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed when I was pregnant with my oldest, and I remember how scary it was to think about becoming a mother if she wasn’t around. By the grace of God, she has been cancer free for almost 11 years, but many are not as lucky. Both my Grandmother and Great-Aunt lost their battles to Breast Cancer along with so many other strong and beautiful women.
I am a huge advocate for more breast cancer research and awareness, especially now that I have a daughter of my own. I want her to have all the knowledge possible to reduce her risk for the future.
Scientists, physicians, and community partners in the Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program (BCERP), which is supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), study the effects of environmental exposures on breast cancer risk later in life. They created a mother-daughter toolkit mothers can use to talk to daughters about steps to take together to reduce risk.
