Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! This month became nationally recognized in 1985, and initially, the aim was to increase the early detection of the disease by encouraging women to have mammograms!

Prevention Tips:

  • Keep Weight in Check!
  • Be Physically Active!
  • Eat Healthy!
  • Avoid Smoking!
  • Little to no Alcohol!

For many women, mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Treatment is most effective when there is early detection!
