Every October, our nation recognizes breast cancer, a disease that impacts one in eight women during the course of their lifetimes. Raising awareness, continually seeking better treatments and supporting those who have been afflicted are all aspects that mark this important month.
Clearly, being diagnosed with breast cancer is not a death sentence, but you must be proactive about receiving screenings and check-ups. I hope you all will share this information with loved ones and encourage them to have a mammogram this year. That one simple step can save lives down the road.
