Focusing on the most common form of cancer in women that strikes women of all ages, National Breast Cancer Awareness is the ideal time to bring a greater awareness of this epidemic to the forefront.

According to the American Cancer Society, this year they estimate over 40,000 women will lose their lives to this disease.

That serious conversation is awareness about the importance of early detection.

A third myth is that there's nothing women can do to reduce their risk of breast cancer.

Anderson's is giving back to two local organizations that support individuals affected by cancer through "Shake it Up for Breast Cancer" now through Tuesday, Oct. 16, at all six Western New York locations. On all private insurance plans, as well as Medicare, mammograms are free.

As Breast Cancer Awareness Month is observed this month, pink will become the color of choice to increase public visibility of the disease and to draw attention to this community's aggressive and energetic commitment to rein it in.

No matter how you raise awareness for such an important cause, we appreciate every effort.
