Breast Cancer Awareness Month

By October 4, 2012Health Tip

October

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month educates women about the importance of early detection.  More and more women are getting mammograms to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages.  As a result, breast cancer deaths are on the  decline. Encourage the women (mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, aunt, cousin, friend, etc.) in your life to get mammograms on a regular basis.

 Clean” will join the support during the month of October to raise awareness and monetary funds for an important cause. Please show your support by purchasing a $2.00 pink bracelet, or make a donation. Donations will be accepted in the HR Office, and all proceeds will be donated to a local Breast Cancer Organization.
