October is designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and MSoS is dedicated to raising awareness and educating the military community about breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide and the second-most common cancer overall. In 2015, an estimated 231,840 cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. alone. So no matter who you are or where you live, understanding breast cancer is important. But the most important thing to know is this: a diagnosis is not a death sentence. Breast cancer can be treated. LEARN MORE
There’s a lot of talk about inequality between men and women, but one area in particular where women are leading in record numbers: heart disease. It’s the No. 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer. MSoS believes in strong partners and looks forward to the campaign while working with the American Heart Association and the Go Read Campaign where we raise awareness through our social media outlets to help spread the word about heart disease within the military community.
It is no secret that after 14 years of war and sacrifice, service members, military spouses, and military children face unusual struggles that they have battled, often silently. Through the month of September which is National Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month you can get involved.
It is no secret that after 14 years of war and sacrifice, service members, military spouses, and military children face unusual struggles that they have battled, often silently. Through this initiative, people within the military and civilian communities can pledge their support to raise the awareness about the importance of mental health related issues.
Recently, it was reported that approximately 22 veterans commit suicide per day; yet, that number is unknown for both the military spouse and the military child. This is unacceptable. Military Spouses of Strength (MSoS) is asking that organizations pledge and become a partner of our campaign to stop the stigma associated with seeking help. LEARN MORE
