We are seven days into the month of October and by now you probably know it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Currently this disease affects one in eight US women. That's a lot! I encourage you all to do self-breast exams monthly and to join and participate in the Breast Cancer Awareness Group. It is a place to share how breast cancer has touched your life and learn ways to fight and prevent the disease. Knowledge is power, and the community is here for support.
