October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer worldwide – 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with it in their lifetime, and about 39,620 women are expected to die of breast cancer in 2013.

This month’s international public health campaign is an annual collaboration of national public service organizations, medical associations, and government agencies to raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research, treatment, prevention and cure. And in this week’s opportunity spotlight, we’d like to raise your awareness of ways to get involved in this great cause!
