As Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes to a close, we encourage every Teamster do their part to increase early detection and raise awareness. Every October is an opportunity to honor and acknowledge breast cancer survivors, caregivers, and loved ones who have been lost. We can make a difference in early detection through self-examinations and a mammogram.
Here are steps that YOU can take to help fight breast cancer!
- Encourage family, friends and loved ones to perform self-exams and seek professional help if they notice any abnormalities.
- Educate via workshops or seminars to heighten awareness and raise money to support institutions working to eradicate the disease.
- Seek out charities and support groups to network and align with other breast cancer patients and survivors so they’re not fighting the illness alone.
Our collective efforts in spreading awareness and providing support will impact the fight against breast cancer. Sharing our knowledge and expertise will create a future where breast cancer will not be a threat to our family, friends and loved ones.
Remember, you are not alone in this fight!
