Hundreds of people learned about breast cancer early Friday morning at Brake for Breakfast, an annual event hosted by Wilson N. Jones.

The event, which raises awareness for breast cancer, has been put on for nine years by the hospital.

People drove through the parking lot and got information on detection and the importance of getting a mammogram.

Drivers received free breakfast and were able to learn more about how to reduce the risk of breast cancer.

"Get your mammogram once a year, it's very important," said Mammographer Misty Nortman. "Early detection is key, it could safe your life. Mammograms save lives."

"Just be sure that everybody remembers it's not just women, men need to have the screenings done as well," said WNJ Volunteer Coordinator Cheryl Brandon.

October is breast cancer awareness month, and Friday National Mammography Day.
