October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and aims to educate communities about the disease.

Ascension Saint Agnes held a ribbon cutting for their new breast cancer care center.

"Approximately 90 per cent of patients survive for many years after diagnosis when breast cancer is detected at the early stages", stated the South African government website.

Saint Agnes administrators say they've seen patients with breast cancer as young as their 20s and as old as 101.

Frimpong remarked that statistics show that it is the most common type of cancer affecting women, adding that the second most common type of cancer overall, hence the need for a collaborative approach to mitigating the impact of the disease.

"When I got breast cancer, I didn't know there was so much support out there, and we just want people to know that PITT can help". They banded together to support one another.

January Jones shared a photo on Wednesday as she cupped her breasts in a pink bra to raise awareness for breast cancer. We are therefore launching a socially inclusive campaign that will give the public opportunity to nominate the cancer survivor whose treatment will be subsidized.
