October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
I participated twice in organizing Breast Cancer Awareness month here in Cebu some years back. This involved not only symposiums on prevalence and prevention, but also more enlightened forms of relaying the needs of those who have acquired the sickness as well as the necessity to disseminate the information to as many women as possible. We had contests and fashion shows, encouraging people's support - ranging from skills and expertise to fund raising activities.
I don't get to do much of that anymore, but I still believe in the cause. Here are some clips first few of which define Breast Cancer - its symptoms, screening mechanisms and treatment. What follows then are news of advancing technology, new medication as well as other relevant information for those who like to learn more.
