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.
