October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Whether you are new to the Laguna Beach community or have been here a while, you’ll find many opportunities to join with local events to show your support. If you’ve just moved into the community, we think this would be the perfect time to establish a relationship with your local healthcare provider. In Orange County, California, you’ll find many locations offering free mammograms during October. Check this link to find a place near your home.
