October is one of our favorite months out of the year! Not only is it our favorite month, but it is also a very important one because it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
October is breast cancer awareness month. This is an annual campaign to increase awareness of breast cancer. Most people are aware of breast cancer but the month is to get people to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages. Early screening saves lives! When breast cancer is detected early, the five-year survival rate is 99%. So, what can you do to get involved?
