October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Elliott, Powell, Baden, and Baker is helping to spread the word. This is a month-long annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease and to support women by helping them get access to education, screening, and support.
According to statistics, in 2021;
- Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in American women.
- 1 in 8 US women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
- For women in the US, breast cancer death rates are higher than those of any other cancer besides lung.
- Men too are affected with 1 in 833 being at risk of the disease.
“Breast cancer can be hidden and not always a lump you can feel or changes you can see,” says EPB&B Personal Lines Account Manager and breast cancer survivor Donna Jones. “Please have your annual mammograms done without fail as it could save your life.”
HERE is how you can help.
