Breast cancer – it is the most common cancer among women in both developed and developing countries. The incidence of breast cancer in developing countries is increasing due to rising life expectancy, future urbanization and the increasing adoption to Western lifestyle. Despite the fact that prevention can be achieved by reducing the risk of some diseases, such strategies can not prevent most cases of breast cancer in low-and middle-income countries, where it is diagnosed at a very late stage. Therefore, the cornerstone in the fight against breast cancer is early detection to improve treatment outcomes and survival.
We all can make change. We can remind women how important it is to make examinations. We also can help to women who already have breast cancer. Even people who study at high school can become a part of this campaign. In order to do this each of us can buy custom wristbands for fund rising against breast cancer. If you have some event in high school ask your friends and class-mates to support this initiative. You can buy pink silicone wristbands or, for example, I love bobbies wristbands. This small action can become a part of great international campaign in fight against breast cancer.
