Reduce Your Risk
The breast cancer movement has accomplished some remarkable things in recent years: breast cancer awareness is everywhere, we're detecting it earlier than ever, and more women have access to quality care. So what's next? It's time to turn our efforts toward prevention.
Some of the risk factors for breast cancer can't be helped, such as family history or whether or not we've had kids. But there are other things—like some exposures to toxic chemicals and radiation—that are within our control. We know it can seem overwhelming, but there really are easy things you can do—today and every day—to reduce your risk.
