October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Like so many others in our community, breast cancer has impacted my life and my family.  My wife Mary Pat is a breast cancer survivor and while great strides have been made in the early detection and treatment of this disease, the fight is far from over. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, women are encouraged to consult with their health care providers to learn more about the disease, discuss their concerns, and develop an appropriate plan for breast cancer screening -- because early detection can save lives.
