October is The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It offers an annual opportunity to raise awareness of breast cancer and its effects among women and families every day. Recognizing this, during the month of October 777 eCigs, a manufacturer of electronic cigarettes is offering 10% off on all products storewide, plus 777 e Cigs will donate 10% of all sales to the City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center. To receive a discount, go to 777ecigs.com and enter the code “BC10” with any order during October, 2012.
City of Hope, located in Duarte, California, was selected by 777 eCigs for this year’s sponsorship as it is a leading institution in cancer research, treatment, prevention and education. It is one of only 40 Comprehensive Cancer Treatment Centers in the United States to have received this highest designation, which is awarded by the National Cancer Institute.
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed disease in women, and second leading cause of death. It’s estimated approximately one in eight women today will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
Proposed solutions to combat these statistics include increasing awareness of breast cancer through education, and encouraging mammograms for early detection. Additional efforts also include helping individuals quit smoking.
Smoking is a confirmed risk factor for many types of cancer, and recent research has confirmed that smoking is a contributing risk factor for developing breast cancer (National Breast Cancer Foundation, 2012). Smoking cessation programs and alternatives to tobacco cigarettes have also been suggested as options to help decrease these numbers.
