P&G Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign / Prize Pack Giveaway 10/28/13

pgbreastcancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and this year, the P&G Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign has partnered with The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to not only educate women, but also the men in their lives, about the importance of early detection.

Unfortunately, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. That is equivalent to an inner circle of girlfriends or the women in an extended family. While breast cancer rates are lower among women of color, death rates are higher among African American and Latina women. In fact, every hour and a half a Latina woman dies of breast cancer in the United States.

Early detection is the best defense against breast cancer. The earlier breast cancer is detected, the higher the survival rate. In fact, when detected during the early (localized) stage – the five year survival rate is 98 percent. (National Cancer Institute)

Ladies, don’t wait until something feels “off” before you make that doctor’s appointment. Go in for screenings and perform self-breast exams at home… even if the disease doesn’t run in your family or you think you’re too young. No one is exempt. You can help save lives by spreading the message that early detection is the best defense in the fight against breast cancer, and creating and following an early detection plan while encouraging others to do the same. Gentlemen, encourage the women in your life to take action and create an early detection plan.

To hear P&G employees’ inspiring stories about moments made possible in their lives due to early detection and download the NBCF’s Early Detection Plan App, visit http://www.pgeveryday.com/bca.

Win a P&G Prize Pack

One of you will enjoy a package of assorted P&G products valued at $50, from brands including Crest, Pantene, Secret, Scope, Swiffer and Venus. I won’t make things complicated, simply comment to enter. Giveaway open to U.S. residents only and ends 10/28/13.

The 2013 P&G Breast Cancer Awareness campaign will help save lives by making a $500,000 donation to The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). Since 2008, P&G has donated more than $2.1MM to the NBCF to help save lives through early detection awareness and education. More than 80 percent of all donations to the NBCF go to programs that benefit women.

    If you have a history of breast cancer, don’t wait until age 40 to get a mammogram

    I do self exams because cancer runs in our family. I am actually even encouraging my son to learn to do them on himself, because I have lost 4 men in my family to cancer. I figure you can’t be too careful.
