Hello,my name is Simona. I am a radiographer. I have received a lot of messages on Facebook regarding the cancer awareness. Instead of simply posting a heart without any comment, I am writing about this: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a worldwide annual campaign in which are involved thousands of organisations, to highlight the importance of breast cancer awareness, education and research.

Breast cancer is caused by damage to a cell’s DNA and till now are still unknown the exact causes of this malignant tumor.
Each year, about 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK. It’s more common in women who are 50 and over, but it can also affect younger women. Also breast cancer in men has become more usual. Around 1 new case of breast cancer  is diagnosed for every 100,000 men.Improvements in treatment mean more people are surviving breast cancer. 

Most cases of breast cancer are found by women noticing unusual changes and visiting their doctor to get them checked. The earlier breast cancer is found, the better the chance of beating it.

Be breast aware by checking the breast regularly, looking for changes and getting in touch with the doctor in case if something unusual happens.

My Dear October

My Dear October, you will be full of Dreams

which spark on the nights through mirth of the angels.

With joy and with hope I’m dancing the waltz 

of leaving and getting the treasures of times.

My Dear October, you will make up my ons

while nostalgic embrace my  memories back

but tying the tales through your foggy dawns 

and eyes of surrender are catching your snaps.

 

My Dear October, you will be full of hope

and joy, while my waltz could become so much sober

Through colors and music I’m catching the rope

while dear to me will remain, my October.
