October 19th, Breast Cancer Awareness Day

Every year 25,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in Spain. Almost all of them are women. One out of eight women will have breast cancer at some point in her life.
Every year on October 19th the Breast Cancer Awareness Day is celebrated to remind us of society's fight against breast cancer.The World Health Organization (WHO) indicates that breast cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer in women. Although most of the deaths caused by it are concentrated in low-income countries, women from developed and developing countries suffer it too. This is due to the sparse information and other impediments to access health services.

On this day, the WHO promotes early detection to improve prognosis and survival rate in the fight against this cancer.
