Blackwell Area Chamber Commerce issued the following announcement on Oct. 4.

This October, Hutton Pharmacy is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer in women after skin cancer. 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..

- If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.

- If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often..

Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms..

Your pharmacists are just a phone call away, and we are always ready to help connect you with the best care. What questions or concerns can we address for you?
