October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. You can find resources that can help you learn about early detection, treatment and support services. Online health resources are available in the library or from home with your library card using Online Resources.
Our extensive print collection explores every aspect of this topic, from treatment options, to post-surgery issues, to tips for discussing the disease with your children. Explore a sampling of our collection.
Finally, the Consumer Health Information Service (CHIS), a service of the Palm Beach County Library System, can provide personalized assistance and follow-up on any questions you may have.
