October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
At Suburban Exterminating, we are putting our pink feet forward, by making our employees aware that October is breast cancer awareness month. We are wearing pink booties this month in order to express our concern for others in our community, along with supporting the cause to encourage women to have an annual mammogram screening.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. From sports teams to websites, people and organizations around the nation “go pink” for October. According to the website, NationalBreastCancer.org, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. It is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women and the second leading cause of death among women in America. With early detection and treatment, victims are able to lead normal lives. This is why we would like to raise awareness and spread the word about early detection with our Long Island customers and family.
