October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. WARM 103.3 encourages you to get regular mammograms and check yourself on a monthly basis.
The HealthyWoman Program is a free breast and cervical cancer early detection program of the Pennsylvania Department of Health. It is funded by the Department of Health and through a grant the department receives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Learn more about the program.
Find a 3D Mammography Center.
Governor Tom Wolf made Pennsylvania the first state in the nation to require insurance coverage of 3D screening mammograms for women insured under PA law. 3D mammograms offer better detection and fewer false alarms. Find a center near you.
The PA Breast Cancer Coalition is a great resource to support a breast cancer patient and their families. If you or someone you know is having difficulty accessing medical services, or has questions about insurance coverage related to breast cancer, they are here to help.

Clothes don’t make the man. But they can make a huge difference in the fight against breast cancer. From community leaders to social influencers, this distinguished group of men is dressed for success and ready to raise awareness and money to support the American Cancer Society.
It’s an amazing opportunity for men to take a leadership role in the fight against breast cancer. Real Men Wear Pink is a program that works alongside Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events by giving communities the opportunity to nominate local male leaders.
These well-dressed and well-intentioned gentlemen then spearhead fundraising for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer initiatives. Every dollar we raise helps save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support.
