This month, we look at educational resources and local events to support the fight against breast cancer.

Breast cancer is an epidemic that continues to be a major health crisis in the United States. More than 12 percent of women in the United States will develop breast cancer, and more than 40,000 die from it every year.   This condition, once diagnosed,  can be overwhelming and frightening for victims and their families. This month, we at the Employee Assistance Program want to highlight different educational and health resources, as well as local charity events and ways to contribute in the community to assist those fighting this deadly chronic illness.

For breast cancer treatment and screening, listed below are several major hospital services in the Boston area:

Have a healthy and happy October!
