October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month—a chance to raise awareness about the importance of screening and the early detection of breast cancer. About one-in-eight women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point during her life. But many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – is the best way to detect and fight breast cancer.

The American Cancer Society recommends women age 40 and older receive a mammogram every year. But right now, one-third of women don’t. Call (269) 341-8700 to make an appointment with the specially-trained experts at Bronson’s comprehensive breast health program.
