OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
According to the World Health Association, breast cancer is most common cancer among women worldwide and is the second leading cause of death. In fact, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
The good news is that the rate of death from breast cancer has been steadily declining since 1990 due to better screening and earlier detection, increased awareness, and continually improving treatment options.
