Kansas City, MO. - Since its inception 28 years ago, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has created a dialogue about breast cancer. Although great advances have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished.
Breast cancer is still the most frequently diagnosed cancer and is the leading cause of death among women worldwide. Fortunately, getting screened regularly can find breast cancer early when it is the most treatable. Despite this fact, nearly 50% of women aged 40+ with health insurance don't get their annual mammograms.
This October, we hope you will celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by taking action! Throughout the month, you will receive special weekly emails with important details about breast health and upcoming events. For daily updates you can share with others, "Like us" on Facebook or "Follow us" on Twitter.
Together, we WILL make a difference!
