The Home Edit Guide for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

How we're prioritizing self-care and giving back this October
The Home Edit Guide for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Welcome October, a month of Holiday build-up and crisp weather that reminds us it’s time to get our sweaters out and (finally) watch Hocus Pocus on repeat. 

It’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Home Edit and breast cancer have a more intimate history, because our co-founder, Clea, endured her own battle with breast cancer in 2022.  As a community of women, sisters, mothers, friends, and survivors, it’s important to us that we continue to advocate for each other, including you.

Here, we've compiled a list of helpful resources in partnership with 84 Lumber, a female-owned lumber supply company, to encourage you to get screened, take action, and take care of yourself this month. 

The Latest Stats

Let’s start with some good news. Breast Cancer death rates have been decreasing steadily since 1989, for an overall decline of 43% through 2020.

However, in recent years, Breast Cancer incidence rates have increased by 0.5% per year.

When breast cancer is detected early, and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%.

Take Action

Self Exam! No matter your age, regular self-breast exams are a simple yet vital way to put your health in your own hands (literally!) Early detection is your best protection…so tell a friend to tell a friend!

Get Screened! Before you are ready for a mammogram, screening is a great method for early detection.
