October ~ Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Not only is October all about pumpkin spice, but it’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month! 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Most people are aware of breast cancer, but many do not take the necessary steps in order to detect the disease in early stages. The National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. has made a lot of progress towards creating awareness and letting women know about the resources available to them in order to detect breast cancer early on.
