While most people are aware of breast cancer, many neglect taking the necessary steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages or encourage others to do the same. Early detection is key to increased survival rates. It’s also important to know that it is not only a woman’s disease. Breast cancer in men also strikes in alarming numbers.
This Saturday, Oct 26th 2013 at the Clifton Chenier Center in Lafayette, LA will be An Evening of Women Inspiring Women; a motivational & empowering women’s conference in support of breast cancer awareness.
