October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each year, The American Cancer Society and other organizations use this month to educate the public about the disease, raise funds for research, and share information on risk factors, prevention, detection, and treatment. As one of the pioneers in women’s health therapies and medications, Carie Boyd offers custom medications specifically tailored to address various conditions and wellness concerns that affect women. We are honored to join the effort to raise awareness about this cancer that affects 1 in 8 women in the U.S.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people cancelled their recommended cancer screenings. The American Cancer Society’s Get Screened campaign encourages people to return to their screening schedule, which includes mammograms. Screening tests can help detect cancer early, even before symptoms, when cancer may be easier to treat.
