This is a sponsored conversation written by me although all opinions are my own, as usual.
When I was a kid, I remember learning the basics of avoiding getting hurt or how to take care of myself which came pretty standard in most childhoods. One very important thing that we were never taught as kids was to reduce our risk of breast cancer and now that we have more information, mothers need to share these tips for reducing their breast cancer risk early on.
As a mom, I tend to worry about my daughter’s well being and some would say that I even lean of the side of overprotective. That is fine with me, I am completely alright with being called overprotective because I care more about my daughter’s well being than I do my own, that is what makes me a great mother.
Every great mother knows what it is like to worry about their children and do their best to protect them from harm.
We are always looking for new ways to improve our kid’s lives, working harder to give them things we never had, and making sure that they are well taken care of, always.
That’s why I want to share information with all of the super moms out there that can help to reduce their daughter’s risk of breast cancer as well as their own. This is important information that all women should know and share with each other so please share this info graphic below with the women in your lives so they can also reduce their risk of breast cancer.
The first step in making a positive change and taking control of your health is to be armed with the proper information to make the most informed decisions possible. These tips are so easy to implement into our day to day lives that it just makes sense to take the steps to reduce your risk of breast cancer, now!
Let’s set a great example for our daughters by taking the steps to reduce our own risk of breast cancer as well as arming them with the information they need to reduce their risk as well.
Scientists, physicians, and community partners in the Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program (BCERP), which is supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), study the effects of environmental exposures on breast cancer risk later in life. They created a mother-daughter toolkit mothers can use to talk to daughters about steps to take together to reduce risk.
Another way to help the next generation is through more research and you can help by taking this survey which will have an important impact on the work that the researchers are doing.
