Stand With Breast Cancer Advocates with These 9 Social Media Templates

Reading Time: 4 minutes

“It’s an incurable disease, but we can treat the symptoms.”

The statement above is the most common line when we talk about cancer. In 2020, the most prominent cancer will become breast cancer. But why is it prevalent, and why should we raise awareness for it?

But first, let’s understand the origins of the word cancer. Hippocrates, a Greek physician, coined the terms carcinos and carcinoma when describing a tumor.

Carcinos means non-ulcer forming, while carcinoma means ulcer-forming tumor. It was due to the veins that popped when a patient had the disease. They would look like crab claws. Thus, cancer became its name, like the astrological symbol.

Etymology aside, breast cancer’s first appearance was in an Egyptian papyrus, the Edwin Smith Papyrus. It recorded a total of 8 cases of breast removal with a fire drill. But the most striking statement in the papyrus was, “There is no treatment.”

The sad reality that every cancer patient has to face is the gradual killing of healthy cells by DNA mutation.

But Why October and the Pink Ribbon?

It was October 1985 when the American Cancer Society and the pharmaceutical division of Imperial Chemical Industries decide to inform the public about the dangers of breast cancer.

Their goal was to inform women about early detection and how to maintain the overall health of their breasts. It was at first a week-long activity that turned into a month-long one.

Thus, to this day and forever, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The pink ribbon, on the other hand, was a collaboration between SELF magazine and cosmetics Estee Lauder in 1992. Around 1.5 million ribbons were given with the cosmetics in counters worldwide.

The result of the effort is The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. It was formed by Evelyn H. Lauder, who was the vice president at the time, as a breast cancer survivor as well.
