Nearly 25 years ago October was made the month for Breast Cancer Awareness. Many organizations and foundations have been put together to help educate the citizens and help raise money to hopefully one day find a cure. Women need to stay educated and empowered to take control of their own breast health. Approximately about 39,520 women died from breast cancer in the year of 2011. Every year, the communities come together to help support breast cancer awareness, and help to save the lives of the people struggling with it.
