According to a survey commissioned by the Avon Foundation for Women, one-third of women are too scared to conduct a breast self-exam for fear of what they may find. Sarah Rawlings of Breakthrough Breast Cancer (UK) urges women to get past their fears, because this is something that is just too important to ignore.
The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade has been working since 1992 to help prevent, treat and ultimately eradicate breast cancer. They have raised more than $740 million and are the leading corporate supporter of the cause globally. One message of the organization to women everywhere is one of empowerment – you can take action to reduce your risks of getting this disease.Whizzco
