Be Your Own Breast Friend

October isn’t all pumpkins and haunted houses—it’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You’ve probably seen the pink ribbons popping up in your social media feeds too. Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer diagnosed in American women. One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. However, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, 62% of women are diagnosed at the localized stage, which has a 99% five-year survival rate. That’s why it’s so important that women are following the guidelines for regular mammograms.

If you feel so inclined. Even YOU can go pink to bring awareness to breast cancer

Unless you have a family history of early-onset breast or ovarian cancer, most women should discuss beginning mammograms with their doctor around age 40. By age 45, you should begin getting yearly mammograms. At age 55, depending on your medical history and your doctor’s recommendations, you may transition to mammograms every other year. You should continue mammograms as long as you are healthy enough to receive them.

Aveda cares about breast cancer, too. In addition to creating products with natural ingredients that keep your hair, skin and body free from parabens and other toxic chemicals, Aveda’s network has donated over $4.7 million to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) over the last 18 years. You can contribute to this effort by purchasing a Limited-Edition Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme with Cherry Almond Aroma. A portion of every sale goes to support the BCRF.
