THIS OCTOBER MARKS THE 27TH-ANNIVERSARY OF "NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH".  IS THERE CAUSE FOR OPTIMISM?  FOR MANY REASONS, THE ANSWER IS A RESOUNDING "YES"--SAYS THE NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE.  THE NUMBER OF WOMEN DIAGNOSED WITH BREAST-CANCER IN THE U-S BEGAN DECREASING IN 2000--AND DEATH-RATES HAVE DROPPED STEADILY SINCE 19-90.  ALTHOUGH FEWER AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMEN ARE GETTING BREAST-CANCER, THEY'RE MORE LIKELY TO DIE OF IT THAN ANY OTHER ETHNIC-GROUP; THEY'RE OFTEN DIAGNOSED YOUNGER, AT LATER STAGES, OR WITH MORE-AGGRESSIVE DISEASE THAN OTHER WOMEN.  SO, THIS MONTH IS A REMINDER FOR ALL WOMEN TO TAKE CHARGE OF THEIR BREAST-HEALTH--BY TALKING WITH THEIR HEALTHCARE-PROVIDER, LEARNING ABOUT THEIR INDIVIDUAL RISK, AND GETTING REGULAR MAMMOGRAMS.  THIS MONTH, CELEBRATE OUR PROGRESS--AND TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR FUTURE.  CALL 1-800-4-"CANCER"--OR VISIT "CANCER"-DOT-GOV--FOR FREE INFORMATION.
