P&G’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign + Giveaway! #PGBestDefense @PGeveryday @SheSpeaksUp

P&G Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign disclosure
2013 BCA Early Detection Logo

Last week I received an email from SheSpeak about helping them spread the word about P&G’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. As you already know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. SheSpeak and P&G have teamed up to help continue to spread awareness about early detection. Did you know that one in eight women will get breast cancer in her lifetime? Yes, you read that correctly one in eight! This cause is very dear and close to my heart, many, many years ago a family member battled breast cancer, thankfully she was able to overcome it and won her battle. This event happened when I was a teenager and it truly impacted my life. Breast Cancer Awareness is more important to me now that I am a mom of three little ones and specially knowing that one in eight women will have to battle this. This fact it is scary to me specially knowing that death rates are higher among African American and Latina women. In fact, every hour and a half a Latina woman dies of breast cancer in the United States.

About 39, 620 women will loose their battle with Cancer but the good news is that early detection is the best defense against breast cancer. The earlier breast cancer is detected, the higher the survival rate. In fact, when detected during the early (localized) stage – the five year survival rate is 98 percent. Ladies, you can help save lives by spreading the message that early detection is the best defense in the fight against breast cancer, and creating and following an early detection plan while encouraging others to do the same. Gentlemen, this October, decide when your “day of action” will be and encourage the women in your life to take action and create an early detection plan.

This year, the P&G Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign has partnered with The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to not only educate women, but also the men in their lives, about the importance of early detection. The 2013 P&G Breast Cancer Awareness campaign will help save lives by making a $500,000 donation to The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). Since 2008, P&G has donated more than $2.1MM to the NBCF to help save lives through early detection awareness and education. More than 80 percent of all donations to the NBCF go to programs that benefit women. You can visit pgeveryday.com/bca to hear P&G employees’ inspiring stories about moments made possible in their lives due to early detection and download the NBCF’s Early Detection Plan App, available throughout the month of October.

    The best defense against breast cancer is early detection. That means getting regular checkups, and it doesn’t hurt to give yourself a check every once in a while either. My sister in law had breast cancer.

    Of course, the best defense is a good offense! Self exams for early detection. I share the importance of those things with my 20-something nieces. I also encourage the girls at work to get mammograms, and not to overlook the men in their lives, as I have had 2 male friends suffer from breast cancer.

  11. Rebecca Parsons says

    My best early prevention is eating healthy and always self check. I had a family member that failed to self check and she lost her battle this past summer. She said she regretted not taking the time to check.

    Early detection is by far the best defense. I’ve seen too many young women wait too long. I check regularly, and try to remind friends and family too!

    My little sister and I try to remind each other often to check–sometimes it’s her, sometimes it’s me.

  15. says

    Early detection is best. I encourage all my friends to do monthly self checks. Know your body so you can know when something is different.

  16. Elaine Powell says

    self-exams are a good line of defense. and remember, there are no dumb questions. most doctors have heard and seen lots that can answer questions you have.

  17. Adrienne Sydnor says

    The best defense is monthly self examinations and mammograms over 40. I will be sharing information with my mother and my daughters
