BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This year, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month will celebrate its 31st anniversary.

Since its inception, NBCAM has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on breast cancer.

NBCAM recognizes that although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished.

As NBCAM celebrates its 31st anniversary, they remain dedicated to educating and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health by practicing regular self-breast exams to identify any changes, scheduling regular visits and annual mammograms with their healthcare provider, adhering to prescribed treatment and knowing the facts about recurrence.

The third Friday in October each year is National Mammography Day, first proclaimed by President Clinton in 1993.

On this day, or throughout the month, women are encouraged to make a mammography appointment.

In 2015, National Mammography Day will be celebrated on October 16. To show our support and assist in the awareness campaign, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office has included the Breast Cancer Awareness graphics on our Career Development Recruitment vehicle.
