Albany-- Phoebe Putney employees dressed in pink and carrying ballons walked around the Hospital today, in the third annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk to help remind you about the importance of exams that could save your life.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Carlton Breast Health Center at Phoebe Putney wants to help women stay aware of breast cancers dangers year round. They continue to promote "The best protection is early detection" in the fight against breast cancer. The centers director hopes all women seek their critical screenings.

"Women need to do their self breast examination once a month. They need to get an annual mammogram if they are over forty. They need a clinical breast exam by their physician annually, and those things are so important for early detection and increased survival" said Carlton Breast Center Medical Director Eileen Kenny.
