Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - October is International Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.
That's why, each October, HealthCare Resources Puerto Vallarta focuses on Breast Cancer Awareness with a variety of special activities and events. This is not to raise any monies, it is all about creating AWARENESS! We hope that you will participate with us.
