OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER ACTION MONTH

Throughout October - CRW and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is encouraging everyone to do their part - to help create a future without breast cancer.

Creating a future without breast cancer takes more than awareness, it takes ACTION!  This year, across Canada, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is transitioning the well-known Breast Cancer Awareness Month into Breast Cancer ACTION Month.

Taking action is easy!
