Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast cancer is a common cancer among American Women. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Let this be a time to focus attention on this life-altering disease, the progress that has been made to find a cure and honoring those that have had or are currently suffering from breast cancer.
Mammograms continue to be the best way to find breast cancer early. Free or low-cost mammograms may be available to women that qualify.
You can also take some steps to help lower the risk of breast cancer.
Do not smoke.
Breastfeed children, if possible.
Keep a healthy weight and exercise regularly.
It is never too late to make healthy changes in your life!
