National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

There are many organizations that support individuals and communities either at a local or national level. Once per month, for Wellness Wednesday, we will share one of these well-respected organizations in order to connect you with more resources that support Health & Wellness. 

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health offers a wealth of information including the following sections:

  • Overview
  • Treatment
  • Causes/ Prevention
  • Screening
  • Research
  • Coping with Cancer
  • Statistics

Wherever you are in the journey from learning about breast cancer to coping with it, this site offers useful information. The link will take you to the patient site, which offers information in understandable jargon-free language.

Every Wednesday, CommunityCare of Lyme lifts up a wellness topic, embracing the widest possible definition of individual and community well-being. We include local and national resources, individual and group programs and practices, and personal stories, videos, or songs that have something to teach us all. We are always seeking guest contributors! 

If you have a wellness-themed topic you would like to share or learn more about, please reach out to
