About 1 in 8 women born today in the US will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that many 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. For the staff of the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to make a difference and raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.</p> <p>Here is what they have planned:</p> <h3><strong>• Breast Cancer Survivors' Dinner</strong></h3> <p>Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014 at 5:30 p.m.</p> <p>New Baptist Church at 610 28th Street in Huntington</p> <p class="phone">304-526-2440</p> <h3>• Think Pink Fashion Show</h3> <p>Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014 at 1 p.m.</p> <p>Huntington Mall</p> <h3><a href="http://edwardsccc.org/[sitetree_link,id=155]">• Free Clinical Breast Exams</a></h3> <p>Friday, Oct. 17, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.</p> <p>Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center</p> <p class="phone">304-526-2440</p> <h3>• Breast Cancer Support Group</h3> <p>Monday, Oct. 20, 2014 at 5:30 p.m.</p> <p>Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center</p> <p class="phone">304-526-2443</p> <h3>• 6th Annual Breast Cancer Conference</h3> <p>Friday, Oct. 24, 2014 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.</p> <p>Harless Auditorium at Cabell Huntington Hospital</p> <p class="phone">304-526-2440</p> <h3>• Brunch at Tiffany's</h3> <p>Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.</p> <p>Cabell Huntington Hospital Atrium</p> <p class="phone">304-526-2440</p> <h3>• Look Good...
