Take Care Tuesday

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a  chance to raise awareness about the importance of screening and the early detection of breast cancer.

About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point in her lifetime. After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women.

The good news? Many women can survive breast cancer if it's found and treated early.  A mammogram--the screening test for breast cancer- can help find breast cancer early.

Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage your loved ones, church members and friends to get involved!

Here are a few ideas:
  • Ask doctors and nurses to speak to women about the importance of getting screened for breast cancer.
  • Encourage women age 40 and older to talk with their doctor about when to start getting mammograms.
  • Talk with women ages 50 to 74 in your community/churches about getting mammograms every 2 years.
