Breast Cancer Awareness Month Boston

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. 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, in the localized stage, the 5-year survival rate is 98%

The best way to fight breast cancer is to have a plan that helps you detect the disease in its early stages. Create your Early Detection Plan to receive reminders to do breast self-exams, and schedule your clinical breast exams and mammograms based on your age and health history.

There are many ways you can support those affected by breast cancer.

As part of breast cancer awareness month we encourage you to visit the official website of The National Breast Cancer Foundation, INC where you will find detailed information about breast cancer, how to detect it, how to treat it, as well as how to get involved with helping others to become more aware of this disease. If you would like to make a donation the National Breast Cancer Foundation click here.

Early detection saves lives – Schedule a Mammogram!

98% of breast cancer patients now survive beyond five years after diagnosis (about 12,000 women and 80 men die from breast cancer each year), thanks to factors including advances in research and treatments, screening and earlier diagnoses.

At Suisse Natural Hair Salon we focus our attention on helping chemotherapy patients recover with dignity. A well known side-effect of chemotherapy treatment is hair loss. Keeping a positive attitude can make a big difference when it comes to recovering from any illness.
