October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness MonthWhile most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. A lot of progress has been made but there is still a long way to go!
Leading a healthy lifestyle can help you reduce your risk factors for breast cancer and other illnesses. The best
way to fight breast cancer is to find the disease in its early stages. By
developing an Early Detection Plan it enables you to be proactive about your health by reminding you to do
monthly breast self-exams and schedule clinical breast exams and mammograms.
