This Hits Home, Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is breast cancer awareness month. I think every month and every day should be dedicated to awareness. My niece was recently diagnosed and is fighting breast cancer, and is going to kick it. I have no doubt.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation partners with medical facilities across the country to provide free mammograms and diagnostic breast care services to under served women through the NBCF National Mammography Program. In addition, the NBCF National Mammography Program requires that medical facilities within our network have the capacity to continue treatment after an abnormal finding or diagnosis of breast cancer.
From the National Breast Cancer Foundation Website:
“As part of the Breast Health Education Program, the National Breast Cancer Foundation is partnering with Convoy of Hope to provide breast cancer education and early detection services to women at community outreaches across the country. Through this partnership, we will be at Convoy of Hope outreaches educating women about the importance of early detection and connecting them to the resources that are available in their community.”
Through this initiative, NBCF has trained over 4,000 volunteers and delivered life-saving services to over 74,000 women on breast self-awareness techniques. At select outreach events, NBCF is able to offer free mammograms to uninsured women through our network of partner hospitals.

I love you Sarah.
