"It's very important to educate women about breast cancer and provide with the need to take steps to schedule an appointment with their doctor to get a referral for a baseline screening in for early detection of the cancer,” said Loretta Hulin. Each year, the month of October is set aside to encourage women to learn how to do monthly self-checks, obtain educational material on breast cancer, and to talk with their doctor for additional information.
