Early Detection of Breast Cancer Can Help Save Lives #PGBestDefense

5:58 PM


This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/P&G.

You likely could not find a person whose life has not been touched by breast cancer in one way or another. It seems we all know someone who has struggled with this horrible disease. In fact, one in eight women will have breast cancer in their lives. That is why the fight continues, the fight against breast cancer and the pain and suffering it causes. So, what can we do?

Well, early detection of breast cancer seems to be the key to survival. The five year survival rate when breast cancer is detected in the earliest stages is 98 percent! Those are pretty great odds. Unfortunately, early detection is not always an option for everyone. That is why the P&G Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign has teamed up this year with The National Breast Cancer Foundation to help spread awareness to women and the men in their lives about early detection.

P&G strives to let women know that early detection is the absolute best defense against breast cancer, and that an early detection plan is important to have in place. Men are encouraged to plan their own "day of action" where they encourage the women in their lives to get checked. Visit the P&G Everyday site to hear inspiring stories from those who have survived due to early detection, and to download NBCF'S Early Detection Plan App available during October. Since 2008, P&G has donated $2.1 million dollars to NBCF to help fight breast cancer and spread awareness, be sure to check out breast cancer month branded products from P&G in stores near you throughout the month.
