Breast Cancer Awareness Month: October 2022


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual initiative to raise public awareness about the impact of breast cancer. The theme of this year’s initiative is “Together We RISE”. The National Breast Cancer Foundation commits to “RISE” and make certain that every woman has access to the screenings and support that she deserves. As many of you know, we lost a team member to cancer a few years ago, and currently have another team member fighting the fight for the third time. We want to stress the importance of regular screenings and check ups with your healthcare provider to remain knowledgeable about your current health. Are you ready to RISE?
