October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast-Cancer-Awareness

In October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month focuses on education about breast cancer and providing support to those diagnosed with, living with, and surviving breast cancer.  Breast cancer affects millions of people and as of January 2021, there were over 3.8 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S.  But breast cancer is not just affecting women; according to cancer.net an estimated 2650 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. 

A diagnosis of breast cancer, or any cancer for that matter, can be overwhelming and not just affect individuals physically.  Depression, anxiety and stress can take their toll and impede physically healing.  Mental health support is critical to cancer victims struggling with emotional challenges.  To learn more about psychological impact of mental health and cancer click here:  Breast cancer: How your mind can help your body (apa.org)
