Lets Paint the Town Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

Join Navicent Health for a Month of Events Celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related death among women in the U.S. and affects those of every ethnicity and socioeconomic background. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. An estimated 268,600 women and an estimated 2,670 men are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Although these statistics are alarming, improving treatments and early detection will allow many of these patients to be survivors.

In order to promote breast cancer awareness and education, Navicent Health has prepared a month-long celebration during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The following is a schedule of Navicent Health’s events and festivities:
