As October marks National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it is an opportunity for Americans and all women leaders around the world to reinvigorate and renew our commitment to increasing public awareness about the importance of early detection and regular mammograms and to honor both survivors and those who have dedicated their lives to preventing breast cancer.
As the President and Founder of We Care for Humanity, and at the same time a women cause-oriented person that I am, let me enjoin everyone to remind our world leaders for new directions that renew our commitment to fighting breast cancer by increasing funding levels for research and for breast and cervical cancer screening programs. We must also continue to educate and inform women about regular self-examination, physician examination, and to ensure access to low-cost, effective mammograms.
As we commemorate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I join everyone in remembering our family members and friends who have lost their lives to breast cancer and salute the more than millions of breast cancer survivors around the world, and the efforts of survivors, volunteers, and professionals who work to combat this disease each day.
