Staying active is essential to lowering one’s risk of developing breast cancer. In fact, obesity has been identified as a major risk factor for not only breast cancer, but for many cancers. According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), among people with cancer, obesity can increase the risk of cancer recurrence and lower survival. Luckily, there are many ways to support breast cancer research while participating in healthy activities – a win-win for all of those in support of BCRF’s mission.
