October is the pink month; it’s the month of breast cancer.
For ‘Fundación Letty Coppel,’ it is vital to address this issue with their collaborators, as well as with the community, to raise awareness through talks and activities about how to prevent it.
It’ll all start with a series of talks in various hotels of the group Pueblo Bonito, in which the audience, in general, is invited to participate with the 2,000 collaborators who will also attend.
On the other hand, this Friday, October 18th, a human bond will be formed in Quivira at 9:00 am. The dress code is a pink or white shirt, and once more, it’s completely open to the public.
Doctor Andrés Flores talked about four factors that contribute to developing breast cancer:
- The Biological Factor
- Attacks women broadly.
- Aging, an aged person is more likely to develop cancer.
- Family history, if an aunt, cousin, or mother had breast cancer.
- Environmental, although Mexico is not the case.
- Women who haven’t had children are more likely to develop cancer.
- Hormonal issues, for example, risk increases in women who don’t breastfeed.
- It can also develop in women who had children after 30 years old.
- Birth-control usage
- Women who are in menopause stage and use oral hormones for more than five years.
- Nutrition, a high-carbohydrate diet, and a low-fiber diet.
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Alcohol and tobacco use
The World Health Organization determined that October be dedicated to breast cancer and cervical cancer, given the fact that breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women of México.
Spreading information and creating activities involving this public health issue is something that ‘Fundación Letty Coppel’ supports.
In closing, ‘Fundación Letty Coppel’ informed that they would create a 3-Kilometer family circuit this next October 27th on behalf of children with cerebral palsy.
The gathering will take place in Plaza Bonita starting at 8:00 am, and the dress code is a blue shirt.
Invite friends, family, and neighbors, and let’s encourage and support!
