EPB&B Is Going Pink For Awareness

October is  Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Elliott, Powell, Baden, and Baker is helping to spread the word.  This is a month-long annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease and to support women by helping them get access to education, screening, and support. 

According to statistics, in 2021;

  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in American women.
  • 1 in 8 US women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
  • For women in the US, breast cancer death rates are higher than those of any other cancer besides lung. 
  • Men too are affected with 1 in 833 being at risk of the disease.

“Breast cancer can be hidden and not always a lump you can feel or changes you can see,” says EPB&B Personal Lines Account Manager and breast cancer survivor Donna Jones. “Please have your annual mammograms done without fail as it could save your life.” 

HERE is how you can help.
