Associates in Medicine supports Breast Cancer Awareness during the month of October.
To commemorate national Breast Cancer Awareness month, staff here at AIM will be wearing breat cancer t-shirts every Friday during the month of October to raise awareness for this disease that threatens the lives of millions of women each year.
Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.
The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
