October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Most of us have some connection to those who have had to fight this dreaded and common cancer. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment provides a great deal of information on this topic. Their Cancer web site takes you to the following 3 programs:
Colorado Women’s Cancer Control Initiative, which strives to reduce breast and cervical cancer among low-income women.
Comprehensive Cancer Program, which leads statewide cancer control efforts.
Colorado Central Cancer Registry, which provides statistics and reports.
Reports on cancer, including breast cancer, are found on all three sites, as well as in our collection, and are searchable in our online catalog.
