You may have noticed a recent ‘Run for the Cure’ race. October is breast cancer awareness month.
Over 90% of breast cancer is curable if found in the early stages. So this is the month to get a mammogram..tell your sisters, nieces, aunts, daughters, mothers…to get screened. Early breast cancer may have no symptoms or notable signs. Self examination – although useful – will often not pick up early breast cancer. Schedule your mammograms today. There is a tweet going around..
