Men in Pink for N.B.C.A.M.
Cimarron Electric Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
This October, Cimarron Electric is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.
The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.
* If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.
* If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.
Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.
Cimarron Electric employees and management have been strong supporters of fundraising events to aid in the early detection and treatment of cancer. “I can’t think of a single family that hasn’t been affected by cancer,” said Jeff Hyatt, Cimarron C.O.O. “I’m real proud of all the things our employees do in their communities to raise money and awareness.”
