WhereYouShop Promotes Breast Cancer Awareness

WhereYouShop Promotes Breast Cancer Awareness

About 1 in 8 women is diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, and in 2011 alone, an estimated 288,130 new invasive and non-invasive breast cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in women. With such high rates of mortality from this disease, bringing awareness to those diagnosed and ensuring that others continually take preventative measures is crucial. The WhereYouShop Team rallied together and wore pink today to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month (the boys showed their support with pink ribbons). Additionally, here are some breast cancer prevention methods for you and your loved ones:

  • Get to know your family history of breast cancer
  • Stay active and exercise
  • Have regular mammogram checkups
  • Maintain a low-fat diet
  • Do self breast exams every month
  • Reduce your alcohol intake and cut out cigarettes
  • Eat fruits
