October is breast cancer awareness month and the Arbee Real Estate team is committed to working with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to raise awareness and help fund research to eradicate this disease once and for all.
So far, research has found that early detection of breast cancer is a key factor in improving survival rates. Women who are diagnosed at an earlier stage of the disease generally have higher survival rates than those with more advanced breast cancer.
What should you be looking out for?
According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation website, any of the following could be an early sign of breast cancer:
Can you reduce your risk?
While most of us can do little to change the general risk factors for developing breast cancer, there are some very important things we do to help reduce our chances of getting the disease.
Visit your doctor immediately if you have any concerns. Australian women aged 40 and over are also encouraged to take advantage of free mammograms through BreastScreen Australia, even if you do not have any symptoms of breast disease.
We encourage everyone in Bacchus Marsh to find out more about breast cancer during October, and to help support research. The NBCF hopes that through research they can achieve the goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030 and beyond.
If you want to help support the NBCF you can list a home with Arbee Real Estate (we donate a portion of every property sold to the NBCF) or you can head into our office to donate or buy Pink Ribbon Merchandise.
