October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One in seven Colorado women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.  Breast cancer remains the third leading cause of cancer death in Colorado, killing more than 500 women annually.  At the same time, there are more than 42,000 breast cancer survivors in Colorado.  Like many cancers, the likelihood of surviving breast cancer increases dramatically with early detection and treatment. Simply put, screening saves lives! Early detection of breast cancer dramatically increases women’s chances of survival – with nearly 98% of women surviving breast cancer as a result of receiving a preventative screening. 

Please call your Provider this month and schedule an appointment for your annual Mammogram or confirm when you should make your appointment.  970.626.5123
