|October proclaimed Breast Awareness Month|
In an effort to increase breast cancer awareness and encourage women to get screened, Gov. Steve Beshear and First Lady Jane Beshear announced October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in Kentucky.
“Every year, more than 2,800 Kentucky women are diagnosed with breast cancer; thousands of others are affected by knowing someone who has suffered with this disease; and everyone should be aware of how to prevent and detect this life-threatening illness,” said Gov. Beshear. “We know that early detection through regular screenings is the key to successful treatment, and we ask you to take part in Breast Cancer Awareness Month by encouraging someone you know to get screened.”
