October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Comments Off

1 in 8 women in the U.S. (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime and about 3% of women actually die from the disease. Compared to African American women, white women are slightly more likely to develop Breast Cancer but less likely to die from it and women of other ethnic backgrounds (Asian, Hispanic, Native American) have a lower risk of developing and dying from Breast Cancer. Although breast cancer incidents have been on a steady decrease since 1998 it is important to keep up support efforts to ensure the rate continues to decline.
