October has ben designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The color pink comes out more and more with ribbons and shirts in support of those who have survived and who we have lost to breast cancer.

This is not only a month of remembering, but also educating everyone about breast cancer. Women are encouraged to get a breast cancer screening at one of many locations on Long Island.
