October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month - a time to reflect on the impact this disease has on families across Wisconsin, and throughout the country, and the progress we continue to make towards a cure. It's also a reminder of the importance of support for continued research & early detection.
Throughout the United States, one in eight women will have breast cancer at some point in their lives and is the most common form of cancer for women in the United States. This disease, however, is no only confined to women - men have also been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Early detection can save lives - inform yourself and reduce your risks and the risks for those you care about.
Make a plan and find out more information from some of the helpful resources by the American Cancer Society.
