Breast Cancer is the second most common type of cancer in women.  We all know someone, whether it be a friend, family member, co-worker, someone in the community, or even our self who has fought this disease.  The good news is that with regular checkups, self-examination and the use of mammograms, early detection provides a greater opportunity to win the battle!

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month provides an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference!  Spread the word about mammograms and encourage your community, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
