Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of screening and the early detection of breast cancer.
About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point during her life. After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women.
The good news? Many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early.
Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
The Avera McKennan Foundation encourages you to participate in many of the October activities including Paint the Town Pink, The Younkers Cut for a Cure, The Etc Expo for Her and many more.
