Breast Cancer Awareness Month

BreastCancerAwarenessSlider

According to the California Cancer Registry, in 2013, over 22,000 women in California will be diagnosed with breast cancer and over 4,000 will die of the disease. Early detection of breast cancer improves the chances of survival. When diagnosed early (at a localized stage), 99 out of every 100 women survive for five years or more. Women are encouraged to talk with their doctor about the benefits and risks of being screened.

The Imperial County Sheriff’s Office supports the fight against breast cancer. Please explore the resources in the links below. Each link will open in a new window.
