Colorado Cancer Coalition has social media toolkit for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual international health campaign to increase awareness and raise funds for research and services for breast cancer causes and risk factors, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and a cure.

About 1 in 7 women in Colorado (Colorado Central Cancer Registry, 2017) will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, making it one of the most common forms of cancer. However, women aren't the only ones who are affected, as men can also develop breast cancer. Informing all Coloradans of the risks and importance of screening can help save lives. Risk reduction and early detection are vital, and social media can aid in this awareness.
