October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Every October, we remind everyone to remind the women that they love, especially themselves, to lower their risk for breast cancer.  Breast cancer is second only to skin cancer as the most common cancer in women.  Methods of reducing the risk of breast cancer are widely known, agreed on by the medical community, and covered by most insurance.

So, this October, join the community and help lower risks of breast cancer by doing the following, or encouraging someone you love to:

1)    Getting screened for breast cancer regularly.  Screenings for breast cancer are mammograms, clinical breast exams (those performed by a doctor or nurse), and breast self exams.
