National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. The good news is that 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 when it’s easier to treat. The American Cancer Society is actively fighting breast cancer by helping women get tested and helping them understand their treatment options and cope with the physical and emotional side effects. They also fund research to help prevent, find, and treat breast cancer.
