Rep. Waters Recognizes Breast Cancer Awareness Month

“I’m proud to join my colleagues, health professionals, and millions of concerned Americans in recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is a disease that knows no boundaries and does not discriminate. It can strike anyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, or economic background. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 245,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and more than 40,000 women die from the disease. I am proud to express my strong support for those engaged in the ongoing fight against breast cancer, which remains the most common cancer among women in our country.
