Understanding Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month, observed every October, is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities to increase awareness of the disease and raise funds for research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure. It also serves as a platform to educate the public about the importance of early screening and tests. The pink ribbon is a widely recognized symbol of breast cancer awareness, representing hope, strength, and unity for survivors, patients, and their families and friends.
