October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The St. Charles Women in Business, now better known as the Bosom Buddies, have a variety of events planned during the month to promote awareness of breast cancer. By doing so, we encourage routine mammograms which lead to early detection and that means a greater chance of years of survival. Events actually kick off on the last Friday of September. Join us for any or all of these events.
