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.

Many health organizations note that the good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.  The National Breast Cancer Foundation notes that “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.
