Three years ago, I lost my mother to Breast cancer. She fought hard, and her courage was remarkable and inspiring. This October, CADsoft Consulting 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 has had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.
CADsoft Consulting is raising awareness by changing our logo to pink for the month of October, which will be reflected on our website and all company communications. In addition, employees are encouraged to wear pink all month long.
