1 in 8 women will develop Breast Cancer over their lifetime.
Richmond, Virginia (PRWEB) October 25, 2013
Joining the fight against breast cancer, Seniors Guide is featuring several articles in their online library that focus on prevention, symptoms and awareness of the disease during the month of October.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Seniors Guide Hopes to educate readers of Seniors Guide Magazine and visitors to http://www.SeniorsGuideOnline.com.
“1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer over their lifetime,” says Katharine Ross, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Seniors Guide. “That number is shockingly high when you think about it… and very scary that it can hit so close to home.”
According to statistics from the National Cancer Institute at the National Institute of Health, breast cancer is one of the leading types of cancer for women in the U.S. Along with a high diagnosis rate, death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides Lung Cancer.
Because breast cancer is not only a risk for older adults, Seniors Guide is also spreading their message on Social Media including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Hoping to educate Baby Boomers, adult children, and seniors as well, Seniors Guide eyes the viral lift of stories about breast cancer to help spread continued awareness.
“We have a lot of followers, socially, who are woman ages 45 and older that we know this message will speak to,” says Ross.
“Many of us have already had our lives affected by this disease – whether a friend, family member, or someone else close to us who has received the diagnosis.”
