Breast Cancer Subject Resource Page Compiled by BST Department


October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. NBCAM.org was established to increase awareness of the disease and raise funds for research. According to the American Cancer Society, it is estimated that among U.S. women there will be 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 39,510 breast cancer deaths in 2012. Birmingham Public Library would like to be among the huge number of organizations and individuals all working together to promote awareness and understanding of the disease. We have put together a Breast Cancer Subject Resource page to assist you in learning more about the disease, its prevention, and treatment.
