Lighthouse Point Dental Supports Breast Cancer Awareness!

October 21, 2015

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Wear your pink!   Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide and the second-most common cancer overall. In 2015, an estimated 231,840 cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. alone. So no matter who you are or where you live, understanding breast cancer is important.

Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990, in part to better due to screening and early detection, increased awareness, and continually improving treatment options. Wear your pink all October long  with us to support Breast Cancer Awareness!
