1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer over their lifetime; and the death rate has increased. Delayed or missed cancer screenings could mean diagnosis at a later stage with a poorer prognosis. With pink being the color representing breast cancer WBHI’s Summer Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign on National Pink Day provides access to critical resources that help beat the odds of breast cancer. In addition WBHI will present risk reduction strategies for heart disease which is the leading cause of death for women.
“Our summer breast cancer campaign on National Pink Day reminds women that ‘You Matter. Get Your Mammogram’ and practice disease prevention and early detection” states Andrea Ivory WBHI’s Founder and Executive Director. “Breast cancer is diagnosed year-round but the good news is that early detection and disease deterrent lifestyles help transform and saves lives”.
A leader in fostering healthy communities WBHI was recently designated the first official Florida license plate designed to support Disease Prevention & Early Detection. Pre-sale vouchers are available at flbreasthealth.com/licenseplate to provide increased education and awareness relating to early detection prevention and screening of breast and heart issues.
