This October, River Oaks Home Care is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women and early detection results in higher chances of beating the disease.
River Oaks Homecare is reaching out to all women in their late 30’s and upwards. Let’s listen to our bodies. Make an appointment for your physical examination today and if you are in your 40’s upwards, make sure you have your annual mammogram scheduled. Also, if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer, your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms done.
Recent studies have also shown most cancers aren’t inherited,only about 5% – 10% are. Let’s start by living a healthy lifestyle, making better healthy choices and striving to do the best we can on an everyday basis.
No One should face Breast Cancer Alone. http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/breast-cancer-awareness-month
