OCTOBER IS NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women.

About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. 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.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved Spring Creek Senior Partners sponsors the Mobile Mammography Scan Van every year so residents of Spring Creek Towers can have their annual screening mammogram.

If you are diagnosed with cancer and live in Spring Creek Towers and are over 60, give us a call and we can help provide information, referral to resources and support during your treatment.
