October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Self Care is Essential
On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States. It can be a terrifying and uncertain time.
"A breast cancer diagnosis and treatment can cause lasting trauma to women’s bodies and it often has a devastating impact on minds too. Debilitating physical side effects, damaged body confidence and the fear of recurrence can lead to stress, anxiety and depression,” said Jane Murphy, Clinical Nurse Specialist at Breast Cancer Care.
“That’s why acts of self-care, however small, are so important for women who have had a breast cancer diagnosis. Taking time - be it a day, an hour or even just a few minutes - to look after yourself, mentally and physically, can help manage the many issues the disease brings,” she added.
