Brookwood

Brookwood

As you peruse the aisles of your favorite department store, you start to notice a trend: pink scarves, pink socks, pink shirts, and pink coffee mugs. Then pink blenders, pink vacuums, and is that a pink microwave?!? Ahh yes, the pink explosion is everywhere, and that can only mean one thing: October is upon us, and everyone is preparing for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is a reminder that there is a gruesome disease that is out to get second base. These sweet, pink pastels are there to nudge us, saying “hey, don’t forget to examine your breasts, get your doctor to check them out too, and schedule your mammogram.” After all, about 1 in 8 U.S. women, and 1 in 1000 U.S. men will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime, and being proactive in this fight is crucial.

Mientras examina los pasillos de sus grandes almacenes favoritos, comienza a notar una tendencia: bufandas, calcetines, camisas y tazas de café de color rosa. Luego mezcladores rosas, aspiradoras rosas, ¿y eso es un microondas rosado? Ah, sí, la explosión rosa está en todas partes, y eso solo puede significar una cosa: octubre está sobre nosotros, y todos se están preparando para el Mes Nacional de Concientización sobre el Cáncer de Mama. Es un recordatorio de que hay una enfermedad espantosa que busca obtener una segunda base. Estos dulces pasteles rosados ​​están ahí para empujarnos, diciendo “oye, no olvides examinar tus senos, haz que tu médico también los revise y programe tu mamografía”. Después de todo, aproximadamente 1 de cada 8 mujeres de EE. UU., Y 1 de cada 1000 hombres de EE. UU. Desarrollará cáncer de mama invasivo a lo largo de su vida, y ser proactivo en esta lucha es crucial.
