Making an 'impact'
In addition to our Wig Drive we offer a collection of outreach and support programs for survivors focused on beauty, wellness, and education.
During the month of October, we hold our Pink Ribbon Campaign, a movement to empower and educate women about breast health awareness.
Early detection is key!
As women, we know our bodies better than anyone else. Be aware of how your breasts look and feel and report any changes to your physician immediately.
Exams can vary for women depending on their age. In your 20s, women should be conducting BSEs or Breast Self Exams. Women between the ages of 30-40 need to be involved in Clinical Breast Exams with their physicians. Annual mammogram detection begins at the age of 40 and in some occasions earlier, depending on your family’s health history.
Signs or symptoms can include: swelling, skin irritation or dimpling, breast or nipple pain, redness or thickening of the nipple or skin, and/or discharge other than breast milk.
Consult your physician if you have any concerns.
