October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer awareness is an effort to raise awareness and reduce the humiliation of breast cancer through education on symptoms and treatment. Greater knowledge will lead to earlier detection of breast cancer, which is associated with higher long-term survival rates. Thus, community members and non-profit organizations raise awareness of breast cancer by organizing multiple events throughout the world. Breast cancer is not a fatal disease, 2% of deaths are occurring due to breast cancer compared to 32% from heart diseases and 56% from other types of cancer (According to World Health Organization).

The pink ribbon and wearing pink outfits are the most prominent symbols of breast cancer awareness, and in many countries, the month of October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Increased awareness has increased the number of women receiving mammograms, the number of breast cancers detected, and the number of women receiving biopsies. Overall, as a result of awareness, breast cancers are being detected at an earlier, more treatable stage.

At the Ontime, we encourage everyone to wear pink, spreading awareness about this cancer at our online store. Our objective is to spread awareness through showing concerns to those who are diagnosed and of those who lost their lives. It is recommended for women to get a mammogram done once in their fruitful life and adopt a healthy lifestyle. Cancer is something, we have to fight until it totally vanishes from this planet. Until then, let us unite and support each and everyone and promote a healthy lifestyle to hunt fatal diseases.
