Coffee For Less Blog
The month of October is dedicated to an annual campaign with one mission in mind: to raise awareness to this widespread disease. By arming others with knowledge on how to detect cancer in its earliest stages, we can become more conscious of the afflictions of breast cancer and provide greater access to lifesaving services through donations. This year, Coffee For Less is joining the fight by teaming up with you, our loyal customers, over our shared love for coffee. We are raising a cup to contribute to the support and knowledge of free mammograms and the continued support on the dialogue for Breast Cancer Awareness. As of now, it is still difficult to pinpoint what the exact causes of Breast Cancer are. Genetics, age, medical history, lifestyle, height and weight are all risk factors that may contribute to the disease. One in every eight women and one in every 1,000 men will develop Breast Cancer in their lifetime. Breast Cancer responds to treatment best with early detection, so breast self-exams are important to check for anomalies. However, mammograms remain the most effective method for early detection. The donations from Breast Cancer go to physician education, screening guidelines and efforts in increasing public awareness with the importance of yearly mammograms.
