Raising awareness of breast cancer

Amarillo, TX - Educating women of the risks of breast cancer is a key way to make sure the disease decreases.

Susan G. Komen for the cure held their annual In the Pink lunch to make sure breast cancer stays on the minds of community members so they can continue to fight the disease.

"At Susan G. Komen for the cure we recognize that breast health awareness is important all year long, not just in September when we have the race and not just October when it is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We just want our community to remember that is important all year long," said Lisa Hoff Davis, the executive director.

Susan G Komen for the cure says one of the ways you can help fight the disease is by doing monthly self breast exams.
