Breast Cancer Awareness
Breast cancer is the number one cancer diagnosed and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women. A woman has a one in eight chance of developing breast cancer sometime during her life.
We encourage you to join the fight against cancer and use the following materials in your organization and community to increase awareness and the importance of prevention of this disease. Together we can make a difference!
