Take Ten: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

If you don’t already know (and, that is you haven’t noticed the pink ribbons adorning all sorts of stuff this month), October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Chances are you may know one of the 1 in 8 women who develop breast cancer during her lifetime, or the 1 in 1000 men who are also at risk. You can see more statistics like these, or learn more, at the Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation. And, pick up one of these books at the Library:
