Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is breast cancer awareness month- in case you haven't yet noticed the sea of pink. We would like to not only support those fighting and surviving breast cancer, but we would like to encourage others to learn more about risk and prevention. Risk is complicated, but incorporating a healthy diet, exercise and maintaining a healthy weight, can reduce your risk of developing breast cancer OR having a recurrence. You can also learn more about cancer screening for women in general.
