October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Timeless Pillows offers beautiful pillows to comfort and celebrate women.
This October, Timeless Pillows.com is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.
The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.
If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.
If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.
Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.
The Celebration Foundation is dedicated to supporting the local breast cancer community by providing an inspirational and empowering showcase of the beauty, grace and resilience of life beyond breast cancer. Forty women (and also men!) who have experienced the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer will model and will be the stars of the next show in September 2019. Although the funds are being raised by breast cancer survivors, they want to share access to the funds with patients being treated for any type of cancer. The first Celebration, in 2009, raised $10,500 for three local cancer organizations. The second Celebration in 2012, raised $16,000 toward the Enloe Compassion Fund to benefit local cancer patients who need special assistance and have exhausted all other resources.
