Our special guest this morning was Chuck Reed of the American Cancer Society. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In Iowa this year, over 2300 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 400 will die from the disease....that's one woman every four hours who will hear those words, "You have breast cancer". Your chances of survival are much better when cancer is detected early...so get your mammogram and more. For women in Iowa who cannot afford a screening test, go to www.idph.state.ia.us/CYF or call 1-866-227-9878 to reach the "Iowa Care for Yourself Program". For more information on cancer, call 1-800-227-2345 or visit www.cancer.org.
If you would like to volunteer to help the Red Cross install smoke alarms in the Highland Park neighborhood on October 12th, to to http://americanredcross.volunteerlocal.com/volunteer/?start_over&id=3524&collapse.
