October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
