UHSM Draws Attention to Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day

NORFOLK, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Unite Health Share Ministries™ (UHSM), a nonprofit, faith-based healthcare sharing ministry supporting Christian believers through member-to-member healthcare sharing memberships, draws attention to Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day, October 13, and hopes its members will join them by sharing support for those with a diagnosis and raising awareness of the importance of early detection.

UHSM believes strongly in a preventative approach to healthcare. According to the CDC, 42,000 women and 500 men in the US die from breast cancer each year; among women, breast cancer is the most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death. Women must take proactive care, from scheduling a mammogram and completing breast self-assessment to learning family history and getting educated on the signs and symptoms.

"At UHSM, we recognize the toll a cancer diagnosis can have not just on the person, but on the loved one's supporting them," said Christopher Jin, UHSM president. "Based on our three pillars of health – mind, body and spirit – we promote connecting those diagnosed with cancer to an organization that facilitates a familial community and proactive treatments."

With its various partnerships, UHSM members have access to programs that provide community support during a difficult diagnosis; for instance, WeShare by UHSM connects members with valuable resources, like Cancer Kinship. Founded by UHSM Ambassador Yolanda Origel, it links survivors with a community of other survivors. Moreover, UHSM's mind, body and spirit wellness programs minimize the impacts of a cancer diagnosis, including depression and anxiety, by focusing on a patient's mental well-being.

This Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day, UHSM members can take the first step of preemptive care, by scheduling a cancer screening and reading these latest blogs on breast cancer.
