This is a sponsored post in partnership with Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program. We hope you will take a few minutes out of your busy day to complete the survey at the end of this post.
Cancer is a scary disease, just the word itself is scary enough, learning a loved one is has cancer affects more people than that person. It impacts their loved ones as well, watching someone suffer from cancer is heartbreaking. The feelings are indescribable and I’m sure many of you can relate.
I was recently asked to share my thoughts through a survey conducted by the Breast Cancer and Environmental Research Program (BCERP). I am thrilled I had the opportunity to share my thoughts and I’m also excited to share a few ways that mothers and daughters can take together to reduce breast cancer risk. It’s definitely a subject we need to be talking about and tips many of us should consider.
If you are not aware the BCERP is made up of a group of scientists, community partners, and physicians. They are supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and they study the effects of environmental exposures and risk of breast cancer later in life. They have a number of resources for families who want to do everything they can to reduce the risk of breast cancer.
One of my favorites is the mother-daughter toolkit! It’s great for mothers to use when discussing ways to reduce cancer risk with their daughters.
I’m sure most of you already know it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we along with the great people at BCERP want to make sure and share a little information about breast cancer risk with you.
We all want our kids to grow up and be healthy but the environment might change the way a young girls body develops. It’s too soon to be certain but what if avoiding certain chemicals or foods could help lower the risk of breast cancer? You could help protect your daughter from getting breast cancer alter in life. I don’t know about you but those are steps I’m willing to start taking.
I encourage you to take a few minutes out of your busy day to take this survey.
