October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Who do you know that his been affected by breast cancer?  Is it your mother, your grandmother, aunt, sister, or friend?  Is it you?  

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as such we implore you to spread the word to everyone you know about the importance of breast cancer screening. This largely curable disease has taken too many lives needlessly. This is mostly because many women think they will never be the one to receive the diagnosis and so they choose not to participate in the simple screening process.  Even worse, how many women know they should get screened but are too busy caring for those around them, their spouses, kids, friends and co-workers, so they don’t have time to focus on themselves?

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, please spread the word about the importance of breast cancer screening.  Send a Mammograms Save Lives E-Card to everyone you know.  The five or ten minutes you spend today could mean a lifetime to someone you know.
