October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.
The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.
In support of the cause, STAjets pilots are wearing pink ties during October. Wearing pink does more than raise money for breast cancer, it also reminds women to get checked. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
