Young Women:  Breast Cancer Prevention Information, Alarming Last Place
Two local businesses take notice:  Young Women unhappy with shortage of prevention methods; seek more empowering options

Young women are fed-up with watching their mothers, aunts and family members go through painful, heart wrenching treatments only to leave them wondering if something could have been done to prevent breast cancer in the first place.  The findings are gleaned from what is becoming a daily deluge of comments and questions for non-profit group Keep a Breast Foundation (KAB) and healthcare facility North Coast Wellness Center (NCWC).

More striking is the idea that these young women are asking questions because they realize that they themselves may be the next victim of a disease that is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women today (after lung cancer) and is the most common cancer among women, excluding nonmelanoma skin cancers. According to the American Cancer Society, about 1.3 million women will be diagnosed with breast cancer annually worldwide and about 465,000 women will die from the disease.

According to Dr. Paul Paez, D.C. Director of NCWC, young woman today are more driven and passionate about being healthy than previous generations.  “They are also more interested in taking control of their own lives instead just waiting to do whatever the doctor tells them to do”, says Dr. Paez.
That is why many young women in North County are seeking help from KAB and NCWC. October is recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and soKAB and NCWC have partnered up to distribute much needed information about breast cancer prevention, early detection and support.

For the entire month of October all new patients seen at NCWC will be given either a free acupuncture or chiropractic exam plus one treatment session in exchange for a $5 donation to the Keep a Breast Foundation.  Patients will also receive a goodie bag full of tips on breast cancer prevention options and a signature “Keep a Breast I Love Boobies” campain bracelet.  In addition, in an effort to support the ongoing need for Breast Cancer Awareness, NCWC will give 1% of all massage service proceeds to the KAB Foundation.
