4 Steps Mothers and Daughters Can Take to Reduce Breast Cancer Risk

4 Steps Mothers and Daughters Can Take to Reduce Breast Cancer Risk

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to recognize this important time, I am excited to share some practical ways that mothers and daughters can work together to reduce their breast cancer risk. This is a sponsored post in partnership with Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program4 Steps Mothers and Daughters Can Take to Reduce Breast Cancer Risk #BCERP #BreastCancerAwareness #MotherDaughter #BreastCancerRiskBreast cancer is a scary thing to talk about. Most of us know someone (or are someone) who has faced that diagnosis. I have friends and relatives who are breast cancer survivors and I have been inspired by the strength and grace they have each demonstrated. Even though I am close to breast cancer survivors, I found myself afraid to talk about breast cancer. I was even terrified the first time I had a mammogram.  So many of us find it easy to wear pink ribbons, but difficult to speak about breast cancer risk and prevention. But the cure for breast cancer will not be rooted in fear.4 Steps Mothers and Daughters Can Take to Reduce Breast Cancer Risk #BCERP #BreastCancerAwareness #MotherDaughter #BreastCancerRiskI am a firm believer in the idea that knowledge is power. The more knowledge we have, the better our chances at defeating this terrible cancer. Scientists, physicians, and community partners in the Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program (BCERP), which is supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), study the effects of environmental exposures on breast cancer risk later in life. They created a mother-daughter toolkit mothers can use to talk to daughters about steps to take together to reduce risk. Knowledge gives us power.

Check out the info-graphic below for steps that moms and their daughters can take together.

Be sure to check out the toolkit, share this post, and complete this survey to help researchers with their efforts. We may not have a cure yet, but we can do our best to take care of ourselves, our daughters, and aid the search for the cure.
