Whether you do it for business reasons or for you own personal sense of style, it is important to express yourself. We actually express ourselves everyday. Sometimes, we aren’t even aware of it. Even something as small, and mostly unnoticed to us, as our personal bank checks can give others a sense of who we are.

If you want to carry personalized checks, rather than plain boring bank checks, you have many options to choose from. You can find humorous checks, cartoon characters, or even religious images. However, some checks are more than just pretty pictures. If you order Breast Cancer Awareness personal checks, for example, money from the sale will actually be given to different breast cancer foundations.

Other than skin cancer, breast cancer faces more American women than any other form of cancer. The chance of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer is 12%, or 1 in 8 women.

Breast cancer, after lung cancer, is the second chief cause of cancer-associated deaths of women. However, since 1990 breast cancer-related deaths have declined, due partly to the fact that breast cancer awareness has lead more women to going for early screenings. Early detection is the key to surviving breast cancer.

There has been more development in the fight against breast cancer than against any other type of cancer. Part of this is due to the breast cancer awareness groups and foundations that help educate women about early detection and treatment options. Early detection is a major key to surviving breast cancer. Today, there are 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

Breast cancer awareness is being increased with the use of breast cancer personal checks. Although the images vary, proceeds from most of the purchases go towards educating women, research opportunities, and treatment. One such foundation that is benefited through this process is the Susan G. Komen Search for the Cure. Sometimes, as much as 10% of the proceeds earned from the checks can be donated to the various foundations.

There are several different breast cancer awareness designs that you can choose from when ordering your checks. Everything from angel-themed checks to pretty retro-themed checks are available for purchase.

Of course, the pink ribbon checks are the most popular. Ribbons are the universal theme for awareness. The pink ribbon has become the globally recognized symbol for breast cancer awareness.

Some companies will even let you create a customized message over the signature line, giving you another way of personalizing your checks. If you have lost a loved one to breast cancer, or if you want to share part of your own survival story, this can be a good way to get the message out.

Remember that if you want to purchase Breast Cancer Awareness checks, it can save you money if you order them online. Ordering them online can actually save you 50% of the cost that your bank will probably charge you. It usually takes about 2 or 3 days for the checks to get to you once you’ve ordered them, so it might even save you time, as well.

Question by TimoD: What is a less toxic alternative to Chemo therapy for breast cancer treatment in a woman?

Chosen answer:

Answer by cran
Do some research or talk to a doctor about the drug Herceptin by Genentech. It’s a relatively new cancer drug to fight breast cancer and they have seen good success. I’m not sure if it’s used in combination or instead of chemo though.
