You’ve seen #NoBraDay trending all over social media, but the hashtag is actually for a good cause. To help bring awareness to national Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the ladies are encouraged to let them free today. Now, we’re not saying go all NSFW to your day job and get fired — just keep in mind that the fight against cancer needs your support.
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American women. Despite the many advances in cancer treatment and great progress over the years, the cause of breast cancer is still unknown. According to the National Cancer Institute, it is estimated that more than 230,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and 40,000 will die. But many do survive breast cancer. In fact, 89 percent survived five or more years after being diagnosed between 2004 and 2010. Finding cancer early by regular self-exams and mammograms can save your life. Know the known risks and talk to your doctor about scheduling a mammogram. (via Examiner)
