Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and it’s more than just wearing pink. It’s a time to recognize the brave journeys of those affected, educate ourselves on early detection, and advocate for comprehensive care. At St. Thomas, we believe in a proactive approach to women’s health, supporting our community every step of the way.
This month, prioritize your health, schedule your screenings, and remember: together, we can make strides against breast cancer.
