HARLINGEN, Texas (ValleyCentral) — Notice we look different?
For the month of October, ValleyCentral will be sporting the color pink for Breast Cancer Awareness.
According to the Texas Health and Human Services, breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in the state, which is why women are encouraged to get routine screenings.
Experts say it is important for women to understand their bodies in order to detect changes like lumps or pain.
Doctors also say the sooner breast cancer is diagnosed, the more options there are when it comes to treatment, as early detection is key.
