January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month!

According to the Alabama Department of Public Health, the incidence of cervical cancer in Alabama is 8.7 women out of every 100,000 (which is higher than the national average of 8.1). This means that more than 200 women each year are diagnosed with cervical cancer in Alabama each year. Here are some quick facts about cervical cancer prevention and early detection.

Alabama's Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network

Young women with breast cancer face unique issues. And in the South, there are more young women overall facing breast cancer. In Alabama, young African-American women are significantly more likely to suffer from breast cancer.

That is why SurviveAL is here. Part of the Gulf States Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network, SurviveAL's mission is to help improve the quality of life for young breast cancer survivors, as well as their family and friends, by providing continuing resources and support.
