Wear Pink October 30th For Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. According to the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, using self-breast exams and mammograms to screen for breast cancer can help detect it early when it’s easier to treat.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Monona County Public Health asks that all individuals and organizations, in Monona County, join together by wearing pink on Monday, October 30th to raise awareness.

Please send a picture of yourself or of a group to Kristin Schmidt, Monona County Public Health Administrator, at mcphadmin@mononacounty.org. These pictures will then be posted on the public health facebook page. We need you and all of Monona County’s organizations and individuals to join our efforts so that we can make our county a healthier and happier place to live, work and play!

For questions, please call Monona County Public Health at 712-433-1773.
