Raffle to Support Breast Cancer Research

Win a free IUI cycle through our raffle to support breast cancer research

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the team at our North Louisiana fertility center is sponsoring a raffle to support breast cancer research. Buy a $2 ticket for a chance to win a free IUI cycle, excluding the cost of medications, valued at $800-$2000. All proceeds from the raffle will go to the American Cancer Society for breast cancer research.

The American Cancer Society works to support breast cancer research

The American Cancer Society provides grants and funding that support research projects across the United States. The organization says, “Our research program has played a role in many of the prevention, screening and treatment advances that save lives from breast cancer today. And we continue to fund research to help save even more lives in the future.”

The team at our North Louisiana fertility center knows how important medical research is for patients. In fact, our patients benefit daily from advances in fertility medicine discovered through research.

About 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime

One reason it is important to support breast cancer research is the prevalence of the condition. Approximately 1 in 8, or 12%, of women will get invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. More women die from breast cancer than any other type, except lung cancer. Researchers and physicians are working diligently to find new treatments.

Thankfully, there are ways to lower your risk. In addition to their support of breast cancer research, the American Cancer Society works to educate women about lowering their risk of breast cancer. While there are risk factors that women cannot control, such as age and a family history of breast cancer, you can take several steps to prevent this type of cancer.

  • Get to and maintain a healthy weight.
  • Aim for 150 minutes of moderate physical activity each week.
  • Avoid alcohol or limit drinking to one drink a day.
  • Quit smoking.
