October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As the month of September comes to a close, school is back into full swing, the weather is getting a bit cooler, the days are a bit shorter, and we’re approaching breast cancer awareness month. Sports Illustrated magazine is even getting in on the action with the October 12th issue this year by promoting breast cancer awareness. It is important to work together to spread the word about the disease to ultimately provide greater access to screening services. Women should get breast exams regularly and consult with health care physicians to be aware of any changes that may occur. Let’s enjoy the rest of 2010 and promote breast cancer awareness in the month of October, as well as throughout the year.
