Why should you "Think Pink" during October?

Almost 232,670 new breast cancer cases are expected in 2014.
Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer found in American women.
Risk factors for breast cancer include age, family history of cancer, alcohol use and obesity.
Women age 40 and older should get a mammogram every one to two years

*Statistics are according to the American Cancer Society
