OCTOBER MONTHLY THEMES

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Search: BREAST CANCER under digital graphics or stock photography

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so we want to share a couple of facts with you:

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women - across all races and ethnicities.

Although breast cancer in men is rare, approximately 2,470 men in the US will be diagnosed with cancer every year.

Over 3.3 billion breast cancer survivors are alive in the US today!

We want to spread the word: Getting screened ASAP is important - an early diagnosis is easier to treat. Our love to the survivors and their families out there, but also to those who were not as fortunate. __________ Apartments stands with you.
