CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP)–October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the annual campaign created in 1985 to increase awareness of the disease.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the United States and about 250,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women and about 2,300 in men annually.
