Breast Cancer Awareness Necklaces

Hello everyone!! Kymona from Kreative Kymona here today with a couple of special necklaces to share with you.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I wanted to create a couple of necklaces to show my support.

Let's Take a Look:

One of my crafty friends recently lost a family member to breast cancer and I wanted to do something and what I thought I could do is raise awareness for others.

The Breast Cancer Awareness image was pulled from the Internet. I thought it was perfect for these Silver Puffy Square Pendant Necklaces that comes in a kit. The Believe Necklace was created with the Silver Scroll Square Tray and the Watercolor Inspiration images.

I have a coworker at work that participates in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk each year. I will give these necklaces to her. One for her to wear all month long, so that everyone will know her dedication to the cause, the other Breast Cancer Awareness necklaces to her biggest supporter and the Believe necklace to a Breast Cancer Survivor that she knows. The best thing we can do is: GET TESTED EARLY!! Early detection can save lives.

I know this will make her day.

Facts About Breast Cancer:

Here are some facts about Breast Cancer in The United States from the National Breast Cancer Foundation, INC:

  • One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.
  • Each year it is estimated that over 252,710 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,500 will die.
  • Although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,470 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 460 will die each year.
  • On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and 1 woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes.
  • Over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today. 

The best thing we can do is: GET TESTED EARLY!! Early detection can save lives.

Breast Cancer Screenings:

Here are some screening guidelines according to the American Cancer Society:

These guidelines are for women at average risk for breast cancer. A woman at average risk doesn’t have a personal history of breast cancer, a strong family history of breast cancer, or a genetic mutation known to increase risk of breast cancer (such as BRCA), and has not had chest radiation therapy before the age of 30.

  • Women between 40 and 44 have the option to start screening with a mammogram every year.
  • Women 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.
  • Women 55 and older can switch to a mammogram every other year, or they can choose to continue yearly mammograms. Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live 10 more years or longer.
  • All women should understand what to expect when getting a mammogram for breast cancer screening – what the test can and cannot do.

I hope today's post has bought about some additional awareness for everyone.
