October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Although death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1989, breast cancer is still the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Decreases are believed to be the result of earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well as improved treatment.

Join the City of Calera as it Goes Pink to support breast cancer research in Alabama. This citywide event kicked off with the Calera High School football game Sept. 19 and culminates with a golf tournament at Timberline on Oct. 19. For details or to get involved, call BCRFA at 205-996-5463.
