RISE in October with National Breast Cancer Foundation

September 30 2022

National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF) announces their Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign, RISE – Rally in Screening Everyone, to ensure every woman has access to the screenings, support, and care she deserves.

The campaign will tap into the collective passion of the community to drive action and impact. The more voices that join this conversation, the further word will spread about the importance of prioritizing breast health and screenings to women across the country. 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. It is critical to keep the RISE message top of mind in October and throughout the year.

“Please don’t make excuses for failing to get your mammogram,” said Janelle Hail, NBCF Founder & CEO. “Schedule your mammogram the same way you manage every important thing in your life. It only takes a few minutes and gives you peace of mind. Even if there is an issue, your options for a healthy life are greater if detected at an early stage.”

For more information about this campaign and to find out how you can get involved with donations and fundraising this October, please visit nbcf.org/october.
