breast cancer awareness

In 2009, the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) organization celebrates its 25th anniversary.  NBCAM promotes awareness of breast cancer issues and serves to educate and empower women to take charge of their own breast health by practicing regular self-breast exams, schedule regular visits and annual mammograms with their healthcare provider, adhering to prescribed treatment, and knowing the facts about recurrence.

October is recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the NBCAM.org web site is a year-round resource for breast cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, and the general public. Visit their site in October and regularly throughout the year for events, free materials, disease information, information on locating mammography and cancer hospitals in your area and more.
