October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! This month constitutes the annual campaign to increase awareness of Breast Cancer, and although it may seem like everyone is already aware of the disease, too many people still forget to take the proper steps in order to detect the disease as early as possible.

This month is about keeping yourself healthy and encouraging others to do the same - and there are many resources available for breast cancer health right here on the North Shore. Visit the North Shore Medical Center's Breast Health Center page to find out about services in your area: http://nsmc.partners.org/breast_health. Or, call 781-477-3105 to find out more information about mammography services offered right here in Lynn at the Lynn Community Health Center.

Also, don't forget to register for the North Shore Medical Center's Cancer Run happening in November!
