Today is National Mammography Day!

October 18, 2019

October 18 is national mammography day - blog by O2 Living makers of living health and wellness hemp extract and progesteroneWe all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but we don't all know that the third Friday every October is National Mammography Day! This Friday, we're sharing some important facts about mammograms and mammography. Mammograms are a crucial part of breast cancer prevention - routine, yearly mammograms can help women stay empowered and educated. 

Mammograms are necessary! 

Since 1989, the American Cancer Society has shown that breast cancer death rates are down 39%. This is attributed to improvements in treatments and early detection by mammograms. In fact, the National Cancer Institute states that mammography is the only available screening method shown to reduce breast cancer mortality.  

Despite the knowledge about how mammograms can help reduce breast cancer deaths, many women are still afraid to get a mammogram. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the best way to beat those unhealthy fears is to have an action plan. Read below for theirs! 

Have a No FEAR Plan

No FEAR plan by national breast cancer foundation https://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/national-mammography-day/

"F-Find medical help as soon as you discover something different about your breasts, such as a nipple discharge, a dimpling of the tissue, a redness, or other unusual symptoms.

E-End bad habits such as overeating, excessive alcohol, smoking, and other things that deteriorate your health.

A-Allow other people to surround you with care and help. Our website, www.BeyondTheShock.com has a support group and medically correct information about breast cancer to guide you through your journey for answers.

R-Run away from bad attitudes and unhealthy thoughts that fuel the fire of fear.

It is time to live your life free of fear and anxiety. At NBCF, we are here to help you with education and services. Instead of dreading mammograms, let’s embrace the opportunity for good health."
