October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. IDPH stands with the courageous women and men who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and honor those who have lost their battle to this terrible disease. As the second most common cancer affecting women, an estimated 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. This month we want to spread hope and awareness about the impact of breast cancer.
