Thinking Pink at ATI

With October as National Breast Cancer Awareness month, we marked our own recognition on October 15. Our ATI family arrived at our offices, homes, schools, and facilities in an array of pinks, all to show support for those who have battled, are battling, or will battle breast cancer.

Some of us have personal experiences. Some of us know someone who has battled breast cancer. Some of us are helping someone through that battle now. But, we ALL stand with every woman and man who has, is, or will battle breast cancer.

Check out our pictures from our Pink Pride Day here and tips for reducing your risk of developing breast cancer below.

According to the CDC the following measures may help reduce your risk of developing breast cancer.

  • Keep a healthy weight.
  • Exercise regularly (at least four hours a week).
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Don’t drink alcohol, or limit alcoholic drinks to no more than one per day.
  • Avoid exposure to chemicals that can cause cancer (carcinogens).
  • Try to reduce your exposure to radiation during medical tests like mammograms, X-rays, CT scans, and PET scans.
  • If you are taking, or have been told to take, hormone replacement therapy or oral contraceptives (birth control pills), ask your doctor about the risks and find out if it is right for you.
  • Breastfeed your babies, if possible.
  • Schedule regular breast cancer screenings. They won’t reduce your risk of development but may provide early detection.
