Crown Nissan of Greenville Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness


Breast Cancer Awareness month is here. That means that this month, Crown Nissan of Greenville is going pink as we help to raise awareness for breast cancer research and support.

Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among American women. That means that due to the disease’s vast reach it is something that affects each and every one of our lives in various ways. It’s not just women who are impacted either; entire families are affected by this disease.

While we’re making great strides, the numbers of those diagnosed with breast cancer are still high. One in eight women will be diagnosed in her lifetime. Most breast cancers are found in women who are 50 years old or older, but breast cancer can also affect younger women, as about 10% of all new cases of breast cancer in the United States are found in women younger than 45.

Due to these statistics, we know that education and early detection are key. Being educated about breast health is huge and making sure that you are taking advantage or screenings and free resources is incredibly important. If someone you love is diagnosed, we should all make sure that we are a supportive hand to help them as they navigate through the confusing world of the cancer care system.

The biggest factor in breast cancer survival is early detection. To help protect yourself, you should be aware of early warning symptoms and signs. You should also make sure that you are performing breast self-exams each and every month. Don’t forget that you each and every year you should also get your breast exam and mammograms from a qualified heath professional. During these wellness checks, you will be checked for suspicious lumps and any other physical changes that should be further investigated. 

If you’re looking for ways to help with fighting the cause, we invite you to become inspired. Ideas include creating a fundraising campaign like creating a charity walk, volunteering with a nationally recognized charity, raising funds through local sports teams, having a bake sale, and more. If we work together, we can all help the woman and men who are impacted at every step of the breast cancer journey.
