Recognizing October 23, 2014
As Breast Cancer Awareness, Early Detection Day
Whereas, the sad fact is that one out of eight women will have breast cancer in their lifetime; and
Whereas, early detection of breast cancer is one of the major factors in defeating cancer; and
Whereas, when breast cancer is detected early there is a marked increase in the chance of treating it successfully; and
Whereas, mammograms can sometimes detect a cancer two years earlier than physical exams; and
Whereas, we encourage women in our community to have this extremely important test performed;
Now, therefore, in recognition of breast cancer awareness, I, David K. Anderson, Mayor of Bonners Ferry, Idaho, do hereby proclaim October 23, 2014 to be “Breast Cancer Awareness, Early Detection Day” in Bonners Ferry and urge all citizens to show support.
