October is here and Breast Cancer Awareness Month has begun.

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women in the United States. The American Cancer Society reports that roughly 40,000 women will die of breast cancer this year.

"There's a lot of new treatments. There's a lot of reason for hope," says Dr. Scott Lippman, director of UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center. 

People across the country are showing their support to spread awareness. Emcor construction workers in San Diego, California are wearing pink hard hats to support screenings. Firefighters in Dayton, Ohio have a pink fire truck to help make breast cancer patients' lives easier.

Businesses in Columbia are also supporting the cause.

Panera Bread is selling pink ribbon bagels to support Becky's Place in Lexington Medical Center. The boutique sells wigs, head wraps, and other specialty items for women undergoing cancer treatment or who have completed treatment.

A portion of every bagel purchase is donated to Becky's Place.

Pink ribbon bagels will be sold through the entire month of October and Becky's Place offers products all year round.
