October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.
  • If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.
  • If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.
At their October 4 meeting the Fairview City Council  presented a breast cancer awareness month proclamation and encouraged all citizens to join in the observation. "As a two-time survivor of breast cancer, I'm pleased to see the City of Fairview raise awareness of this disease that has affected so many of our citizens and city employees," said Fairview Councilor Lisa Barton Mullins.
