Albany - Pretty in Pink, tea for two was held by the cancer center today.

The purpose of the event was to teach women the importance of monthly self breast exams, and what they should do if they detect a breast lump.

"We want to encourage women and tell them the importance of early detection," says Patricia Miller. "We need to let them know, early detection is the best protection. And they need to take care of themselves. So, we're trying to encourage women to be proactive about their health."

All women are at risk of getting breast cancer. Doing monthly self breast exams, and visiting your doctor once a year are key to detecting the disease.
