October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month  Fall is finally upon us, as the falling leaves and the falling temperatures constantly remind us. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge all of the women in my community, and implore them to take the time to take care of themselves. As October has been designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I wish to take this time to remind you all how important it is to schedule a yearly mammogram. With breast cancer rates on the rise in recent decades, it is recommended that a clinical breast exam by a trained medical professional begin at age 20 and be done a minimum of every three years until the age of 40; women over 40 should undergo breast exams every year. Breast cancer can be treated effectively when detected early.
