What Beards Need to Know About Breast Cancer Awareness Month
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month was founded in October 1985, and originated from a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the pharmaceutical division of the Imperial Chemical Industries. From it’s inception, the goal of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is to promote mammograms as the preventive method to fight against breast cancer. This annual campaign is international and runs from October 1st through October 31st. During this month, various organizations raise funds for research, prevention, education, awareness, and treatment for those women diagnosed with breast cancer. The fundraising activities consist of walks, marathons, and wearing the color pink.
Beards Need to Know the Impact of Breast Cancer
According to 2018 facts and figures published by the American Breast Cancer Society, it is estimated that there are 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 40,920 breast cancers deaths in the U.S. among women.
