National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is designated National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s an opportunity to inform, educate and highlight the year-round efforts to fight breast cancer in our community and around the world.
For Komen Missouri, this is just one month out of 12. We’re working all year long to connect women and men in our community with breast health services, to raise vital funds for these services and breast cancer research, and to educate individuals about breast health.
Throughout the month, we’ll share breast health facts and stories spanning the breast cancer journey to enhance awareness and encourage action. Follow along on our blog and social media channels.
