Ways to raise breast cancer awareness

 

  • For starters, ask your doctor about how often you need to be screened for breast cancer. Start awareness with yourself. You should be able to fight off the disease on a personal level first, before venturing out to a community.
  • Read up all you can on breast cancer. Do not confine yourself to the material found on the pamphlets that your doctor provides. Look up credible sources of information on the internet such as the official website of American Cancer Society.
