Breast Cancer and Health Resources

Dear Friends,

This October, communities across the country stand united in raising awareness for breast cancer. Accounting for 1 in 3 cancer cases every year, breast cancer is the most common cancer for women, with the majority found in women 50 years or older. The Center for Disease Control recommends that women over the age of 40 speak with their health care provider about when and how often they should have a screening completed.
