Go Pink for Breast Cancer
This month we also want to highlight breast cancer, the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women and the second leading cause of cancer death among women. Statistics show that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. The good news is that 98% of breast cancer patients survive when diagnosed early, but, as with most illnesses, early detection is key! After the age of 40, women should begin talking to their doctor about their risk factors and when to start mammograms. If you fall into this category or someone you know does, consider taking a proactive approach this month. You can also join many in support of research for breast cancer at the annual Making Strides in the Lehigh Valley walk on Saturday, October 26th in Bethlehem.
