Supporting Breast Cancer Knowledge Distribution  

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. The entire month is dedicated to raising awareness about the disease, supporting those whose lives are impacted by the disease and raising money to further efforts of research, treatment and a search for a cure.

This October, all those in the plumbing industry want to take a moment to honor survivors and show support for those currently impacted by breast cancer.

As part of those efforts, they want to share some ways that everyone can get involved in the festivities and show their support for breast cancer awareness month.

The Power of the Pink Ribbon

Wearing a pink ribbon might seem like a small action, but it actually can have a big impact. The pink ribbon is the international symbol for breast cancer. As such, the simple act of wearing it raises awareness, which in turn helps with both fundraising and early detection efforts.

Additionally, it’s a way to show support for survivors and anyone impacted by the disease. Finally, it’s come to be a symbol of health and vitality as well as a sign of empowerment for women. Carrying great significance, the act of wearing a pink ribbon is an easy way to have a big impact this October.

Participate in "Wear Pink Day" on October 18th

breast cancer awareness Pink is seen often throughout different days of October - on buildings, in the form of ribbons, at NFL games and as part of community events.

While the entire month gives opportunities for wearing pink, there is one day that is specifically dedicated to “wear pink” day.

October 18th is a day for people around the world to wear pink in support of breast cancer awareness, prevention, and research. Join both local efforts and a global movement by wearing pink in support of breast cancer awareness this October 18th.

Know the Early Medical Signs

One of the primary objectives of breast cancer awareness month is educating people about the disease and promoting early detection. Early detection occurs as a result of screening and self-examinations. It also occurs when people are aware of early symptoms and respond to early symptoms as soon as possible. As such, knowing and sharing some of the early signs of breast cancer is an easy and effective way to support early detection efforts this October.

Some common early signs of breast cancer include a lump in the breast tissue; skin changes in one or both breasts; a change in the size or shape of one breast; nipple discharge; pain; or lumps on the side of the breast. Being aware of these early signs and responding if any are detected is an important part of early detection.

The plumbing industry is proud to honor and celebrate those impacted by breast cancer. They also look forward to raising awareness and support for the disease this October and hope that you’ll do the same.
