October Is The Month Of Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.


While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.



It’s that time of year again. it’s officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
