Welcome to 31 Days of Pink, Touro Infirmary’s movement to raise breast health awareness every day during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout the month, Touro will share daily education on our blog and social media sites designed to inform, educate, inspire and provide helpful resources.
Today, breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women in the United States during her lifetime. In Louisiana, the rate of breast cancer is 123.4 per 100,000 women, which is on average for the nation. However, Louisiana has one of the highest rates of mortality in the nation. We can change this by educating our community and encouraging to life saving screenings. When detected early, breast cancer is most treatable.
Together we are fighting to beat this disease. We hope that you will join the conversation.
