Associates in Periodontics are wearing these bracelets in October to show support of all our friends, family and co-workers who have (or have had) this battle.
The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month of October is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of screening and the early detection of breast cancer. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point during her life. After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women.
The good news? Many women can survive breast cancer if it's found and treated early. A mammogram - the screening test for breast cancer - can help find breast cancer early. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families and individuals to get involved.
