Are you going to be sporting something pink this month? Well, you should be since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women and women with a family history of Breast Cancer have a higher risk of being diagnosed with it. Countless companies make products specifically for Breast Cancer Pink Purchases, check it out and  these links that show info on women of different ethnicities with breast cancer:

1) Statistics in Women with Breast Cancer

2) Breast Cancer and African-American Women

3) Breast Cancer and Asian Women

4) Breast Cancer and Hispanic Women

5) Breast Cancer in White Women

6) Breast Cancer and Native American Women

Be sure to also check out my interview with two-time breast cancer survivor, Bashira Brown, which was posted last year.

cancer made simple - February 5, 2011

hang in there karen and I seriously think that a positive attitude is just as good if not better than any medicine out there…keep your spirits up and spread your positivity around. I have not ever had cancer but am passionate to help educate people about it as I have spent so many years studying it! We have a long way to go in terms of successful treatments, but we can all learn to have a healthy and positive attitude. Make sure you follow my blog here at simplecancer for lots of general useful info on cancer!
Thanks Dr. C
