Early Detection Saves Lives Breast Cancer P&G Gift Basket Giveaway – Ends 10/27

Early Detection Breast Cancer

This post is brought to you by P&G to bring awareness for breast cancer awareness. All opinions and support for this cause are completely and totally our own.

 

Did you know that one in eight women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. One in eight. That is equivalent to an inner circle of girlfriends or the women in an extended family. While breast cancer rates are lower among non-Caucasian women, death rates are higher among African American and Latina women. In fact, every hour and a half a Latina woman dies of breast cancer in the United States.

While we’re fortunate that none of our direct family is currently impacted by breast cancer here at Two Kids and a Coupon, my mom has lost some dear friends to this terrible disease. They passed away at a very early age, before they were old enough to see their kids live out their full lives or enjoy their grandchildren.

There is hope though. Early detection is the best defense against breast cancer and the earlier breast cancer is detected, the higher the survival rate. According to the National Cancer Institute, when detected during the early (localized) stage – the five year survival rate is 98 percent.

To help make women more aware of the importance of early detection, this year, the P&G Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign has partnered with The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to not only educate women, but also the men in their lives to help support detection as well.

About P&G’s Contribution to the National Breast Cancer Foundation
The 2013 P&G Breast Cancer Awareness campaign will help save lives by making a $500,000 donation to The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). Since 2008, P&G has donated more than $2.1MM to the NBCF to help save lives through early detection awareness and education. More than 80 percent of all donations to the NBCF go to programs that benefit women.

You can visit http://www.pgeveryday.com/bca to hear P&G employees’ inspiring stories about moments made possible in their lives due to early detection and download the NBCF’s Early Detection Plan App, available throughout the month of October.

    Yes, I was diagnosed with Stage 3C breast cancer, it was the second most dangerous diagnosis and I was a basket case, not knowing if I would be there to watch my children grow up and dealing with two years of treatment. I was sick all of the time but I am thankful for the wonderful doctor who treated me and the nurses who dealt with me for the whole time. I am doing okay now. Every twinge of pain brings back fears of the horror of this disease, but my kids are all grown, and I am 8 years out since diagnosis. I enjoy life much more now than I did before getting sick, because I realize that life really is a gift and you have to make the most of it because none of us are guaranteed tomorrow.
