This year, more than 5,000 Wisconsin women will find out they have breast cancer. The disease has a high survival rate, as long as you detect it early.
The Good News: Regardless of whether you have insurance or which kind of insurance you have, the Wisconsin Well Woman Program makes sure everyone can get screened for breast cancer.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many people become more "aware" of the disease after a personal or family diagnosis, which 1 in 8 women will receive in their lifetime. Brookfield teenagers Anvesha and Anushka Guru have had neither, and that's what makes their commitment so uniquely inspiring.
