Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Ocotber is the official month to help promote awareness about breast cancer. Although breast cancer is well-known by many, we want to help make sure that everyone is aware how life-threatening this type of cancer is and how many lives it effects on a daily basis.

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. It is the number one cause of cancer death in Hispanic women and is the second most common cancer death in Caucasian, African American, Asia, and Native women. The statistics of how common this type of cancer is, is extremely devastating.

*1 out of 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer throughout the course of their lifetime.

*More than 1 out of every 4 cancers diagnosed in women are breast cancers

*A women's risk of breast cancer doubles if she has a first degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
DON'T sit back and watch this disease kill way too many amazing women. You can help!
