Breast Cancer and Cancer Awareness. Breast Cancer touches all of us in some way. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go. Here we have assembled a collection of items to show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness.
