Find information and resources during Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Why all the pink? Highlighting an important issue.
During the month of October, you’ll see a lot of the color pink around.
That’s because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM). It’s an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.
Below you’ll find links to organizations that can provide information and support if you or anyone you know is affected by the issue.
