Did you know that a young woman in her twenties can be diagnosed with breast cancer? Do you know a woman’s chances of developing breast cancer increases with age? Unfortunately, all women are at risk of developing breast cancer. Health officials estimate that one out of every eight women will be diagnosed with the disease.

Ladies, we are nearing the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And I just wanted to remind you to do the following:

  • perform your monthly self breast exam
  • make an appointment with your physician for your well woman’s exam
  • visit your local health department for more resources on breast cancer exams and awareness programs

For more information, visit the Susan G. Komen’s website ww5.komen.org or the American Cancer Society at http://www.cancer.org.
