U.S. Congresswoman Frederica Wilson issues a statement about National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which runs from October 1 to the 31.

“Let us continue to stand together and fight to find a cure for breast cancer. So many lives have been lost to this horrible disease. However, through early detection and advancements in medicine and treatment, many lives have been saved. Let us remember those who lost their fight with breast cancer and honor them by supporting efforts and organizations working to find a cure.”
