October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  The annual international health campaign is organized yearly by major charities and organizations to raise awareness about the impact of breast cancer.

Every October, people all over the state of New Jersey observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Whether it’s to educate themselves, honor a loved one, or recognize a survivor, there are people we cross paths with every day affected by breast cancer.
