October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During October we honor the women and men who have been diagnosed, will be diagnosed, are in treatment and have passed away due to breast cancer. Officers have the option of wearing a pink version of our police badge, purchased by the officer with part of the proceeds benefiting breast cancer research. One in eight women will develop breast cancer during their lifetime. Doctors are encouraging women to do self-checks and get a mammogram every year. Early detection is so important in setting up a treatment plan.
