HARLINGEN, Texas (ValleyCentral) — October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and medical experts remind the public of how important early detection is in fighting breast cancer.

“Breast cancer awareness is very important. I think people kind of lost sight of why we wear pink. It’s to remind people to make an appointment for a mammogram. It can make a world of difference because as we all know, the earlier you catch something, the better chance of a positive outcome you have,” said Joey Govea, RT(R)(CT), MSHS, Director of Imaging Services, Valley Baptist Medical Center.
