When is Breast Cancer Awareness Month? National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, or NBCAM, runs through October of ever year, though according to the website, it’s not simply a month-long initiative, and “NBCAM is dedicated to raising awareness and educating individuals about breast cancer throughout the year.” Founded more than 25 years ago, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month brings together “national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies,” and the goal is raising awareness of breast cancer and providing better access to care.
“When is Breast Cancer Awareness Month?” is perhaps a question common among those who’d like to help out. Come October, folks hoping to support NBCAM might give money to groups like the American Cancer Society, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, and Cancercare, and a full list of participating agencies is available on the NBCAM website. There’s also a store, where a portion of proceeds support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
