October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Ellen DeGeneres is hosting a special episode of her show on Monday to mark the occasion. Ellen, whose mother is a breast cancer survivor, is joined by breast cancer survivor Sheryl Crow who shares some preventive tips.

Crow, who has undergone treatment for breast cancer, told Ellen that she thinks recovery is as much mental as it is physical. "I think we can go through all the scientific aspects of disease, but I think you also have to weigh in the metaphysical aspects," she said. "And a lot of that is attitude and how does it tie into your life and how you see yourself."

Be sure to check out a special episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Monday.
