Why is October the month for breast cancer awareness? National Breast Cancer Awareness Month dates back to October 1985. This is when the first organized movement to bring attention to the dangers of breast cancer occurred in the United States. Since then, campaigns to educate the public about this disease have continued to thrive and multiply.
What do you say to a breast cancer survivor? Don’t minimize their experience. Try not to say, “Don’t worry, you’ll be fine.” You don’t know that. Instead say, “I’m really sorry,” or “I hope it will be okay.” And don’t refer to his or her cancer as “the good cancer.” These statements downplay what he or she is going through.
