Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.
 
Doraville is fortunate to have a local service charity that provides support and education for those with breast cancer. I Will Survive, Inc., 5879 New Peachtree Road, is  a non-profit agency operated by military veteran Anisa Palmer who did two deployments in Iraq for the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division.

She created
the agency in memory of her mother, who lost a battle with cancer at age 38, and to help others struggling with
the disease. Donations to the agency are appreciated.
 
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, held every October, is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
