Fight Cancer: Breast Cancer Awareness Month events

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so KTVU is teaming up with the American Cancer Society to encourage women to stay on top of their screenings.

Doctors say that women over 40 should be sure to schedule a mammogram.

To help raise money to fight cancer, honor cancer survivors, and mourn victims of the disease, KTVU is sponsoring these upcoming events at great Bay Area parks. The events are organized by the American Cancer Society as part of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign.
