October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a public health campaign during October every year to increase awareness and to raise funds for researching the cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of the disease. 

Breast cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer in women; unfortunately, almost 1 in 8 women in the US will get breast cancer, but most women can survive if it is found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can find breast cancer early, when it is easiest to treat.
