CFSC Breast Cancer Awareness

CFSC Breast Cancer Awareness

The likelihood is, we all know someone that has been affected by cancer in one way or another. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and for very good reason. With 1 in 8 women set to be diagnosed in her lifetime, it’s more important than ever to be proactive and learn how to help safeguard yourself and your loved ones to give you, and them, the best chance at beating breast cancer in the event of a diagnosis.

Alarming Statistics

Breast cancer awareness has become a common household phrase. That’s partially because every nineteen seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer, and every 74 seconds, someone is the world dies from it. These facts are a hard pill to swallow, but the bright light in this dark tunnel is the fact that diagnosis doesn’t have to mean a death sentence.

Early Detection is Key

You’ve heard this before, and you’ll hear it again because it’s the biggest factor in having a higher success rate after diagnosis. Early detection can mean all the difference, and that’s why it’s so important.

Scheduling a yearly checkup – and keeping it – is crucial. A lot can change in a year, so why risk waiting any longer than that? In addition to your yearly checkups, self-examinations can help keep you aware of changes in your body and also provide peace of mind in between exams.

Don’t Lose Hope

98% of breast cancer patients experience positive results when they detect and treat early. That alone is a pretty good reason to take steps for early detection. Make sure you educate yourself, and then tell your neighbors, your friends, and your family because we’re all in this together.

Become Informed

CFSC is making it our mission to help inform, educate, and support those in our communities in conjunction with the National Breast Cancer Foundation during the month of October. Stop by any of our check cashing locations where you’ll find important information regarding what you need to know about breast cancer and possible early signs as well as a helpful brochure to teach you how to perform your own self-examinations.

For more information on early detection, where to find valuable resources for educating yourself in the fight against breast cancer, and a community of people that stands beside you, visit our site here or head over to your nearest location and Think Pink!

Why Bill Pay Works for Most People

Drowning in bills and their upcoming deadlines? Take a deep breath. CFSC Bill Pay can help. Thanks to our relationships with hundreds of billers, we can often get your account credited instantly. You can even pay in cash if you’d rather not pay online. If you’re having trouble keeping track of mounting bills, you can even pay multiple bills at once. Here are some other reasons why CFSC’s bill payment system works for most people.


On Time Payments

It’s important to pay your bills on time. By trusting CFSC to help make your bill payments electronically, you’ll pay your bills faster and manage your deadlines better. These on time payments will help you in the future by improving your credit score. You’ll see multiple benefits from an improved credit score, including lower-interest rates.

Reduce Late Fees

Late fees add up. If they add up for too long and your outstanding balance becomes too much, your debt will be turned over to a collections agency. This can damage your financial well-being. CFSC can help you avoid late fees by helping you pay your bills fast and easy.


As mentioned, you can pay all your bills at one location with CFSC. There is also minimal delay between the date you pay and the date the bill is settled. This will help to prevent late fees, loss of service, or disruption of service. No need to worry about making an appointment. Walk-ins are welcome! We offer bill payment options for credit cards, phone bills, gas services, electricity, and more. Call or visit your nearby CFSC location to see if bill pay is the right option for you.
