October 2007 marks the 23rd year of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) campaign.
Each year, the 3rd Friday in October (this year it is the 19th) is designated National Mammography Day. On this day and during the course of the month, some radiologists provide free or discounted screenings. Last year more than 705 American College of Radiology accredited facilities took part in the program according to the NBCAM.
