Cancer starts in body cells. Cells make up body tissue, including breast tissue.
When cells do not die off as they are supposed to, the cells begin to build up. Build up of cells then form masses; usually in the forms of lumps, growths, or tumors. When these infectious tumors develop in the breast, this is what is known as Breast Cancer.
Cancer cells sometimes break away from the original tumor through the blood vessels and into the body’s tissues, where it begins to damage other tissues and organs.
During the month of October we shine a light on Breast Cancer.
Our goal is to honor survivors, remember those lost to this deadly disease, and support the efforts made to defeat breast cancer.
