The face of breast cancer in Marshall County can look pretty familiar.

The statistics seem daunting – more than 3,100 Alabama women receive a breast cancer diagnosis each year. The good news, thanks to early detection, is that 99% of women with a localized diagnosis have a five-year survival rate. That’s why we remind women to get regular mammograms. And why we ask you to support our mammography assistance program for those who need financial help. The face of a breast cancer survivor can look pretty familiar in Marshall County. We’re always grateful when a smile tells the story like those of the survivors and family members pictured here.
