October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

pink-ribonOctober is National Breast Cancer Awareness month; a time to rededicate our commitment to lessen the impact of the most common cancer affecting women. After lung cancer, breast cancer is the second leading cause of death for women in the United States. Currently there are 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. A woman in the United States has 1 in 8 chance of developing invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. Nevertheless, 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer and additional 64,640 non-invasive form of breast cancer (carcinoma in situ) are expected to be diagnosed this year.
