Giddy Staff is composed of writers and editors dedicated to bringing you up-to-date, accurate and expertly sourced sexual health information.

When we talk about breast cancer, it's important we talk about all aspects of the deadly disease—emerging research, risk factors you need to know, and the heavy emotional weight that cancer brings to patients and loved ones alike. That's why, this October, Giddy is bringing you a special series for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Over the next four weeks, we'll talk about the hopes we have in current research, the misunderstandings of genetic risk and the emotional strain of being a caretaker. We'll also look at how brave women are overcoming cancer and going on to live their most fulfilling life.

Breast cancer is most simply defined as an uncontrolled grown of abnormal cells in the breast—but it's so much more than that.
