Hi Friends,

During the initial days of my challenge I had done a post on October being the month for  both Breast Cancer awareness and Domestic Violence awareness.  And today I will talk about  couple of scary facts related to Breast Cancer.

It’s a scary fact: Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among Latinas, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

While 88% of Hispanic women say they know how to perform a breast self-examination, less than half (45%) do it on a monthly basis, according to a survey released this month by Procter & Gamble’s Latina-focused Orgullosa programme.

Detecting the early-on can significantly boost your chances for successful treatment, and since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, it’s a good time to remember that there are preventative steps that women can take.

Hispanic women are less likely than their non-Hispanic white peers to get breast cancer, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). Interesting and this one needs more research.
