A pink October

October is breast cancer month all over the world. Breast cancer is a huge issue among women. In Australia, as many as 11 700 women are newly diagnosed and 2600 succumb to the disease. In men, brest cancer affects at a rate of 1% that of women. So, it's still possible for men to get the disease, albeit small.

Many survivors had to face difficult moments when dealing the news of having breast cancer, going through surgery or surgeries, chemotherapy or radiotherapy and even face having to lose one or both breasts.

During breast cancer month the focus will be on research to help treatment and quality of life of individuals with breast cancer, funding as well as information for all women. On the fourth Monday of October (27th October), it will be the Pink Ribbon Day. On this day, activities to educate and bring together all women (healthy, ill and survivors). While I may not be a fan of pink, I will definitely wear something pink in support of women (and men!) with breast cancer.

Oktober är bröstcancer månad över hela världen. Bröstcancer är en väldigt hälsoproblem bland kvinnor. I Australien, 11 700 kvinnor är diagnostiserade och 2 600 dör av sjukdomen. Män kan få bröstcancer också, men i en takt på 1% jämfört med kvinnor.

Många överlevande och patienter hade många svårigheter. Diagnosen, de kirurgi, kemoterapi och radioterapi och mista en bröst eller båda bröst.

Under bröstcancer månad, fokusen är på forskning som om kurer och livskvalitet av folk med bröstcancer och överlevande. 27 Oktober är Skärt Band Dagen. Evenemanget syftar till att utbilda och föra samman människor (hälsosam, sjul och överlevande).

Jag kommer att bära något rosa, även om det inte är min favoritfärg.

Savvy: Yes. That's so true. It's not a disease of the elderly. Anyone can get it.
