Pink Ribbon and Breast Cancer Awareness

October is breast cancer awareness month and the pink ribbon is the international symbol of breast cancer awareness.

Every woman should know what breast cancer is and how to detect it. Since early detection improves the chances of a patient beating cancer.

It is so alarming to learn that the Philippines ranks number one in Asia with the most number of breast cancer cases each year. Breast Cancer is the most common cancer among women. It is the leading cause of death among the types of cancer in Hispanics and the second cause of death among Asians.

Sadly, my mom was part of the above mentioned statistics. She died of breast cancer thirteen years ago.

Here’s the link to my post about breast cancer awareness I’ve written a year ago
