Thinking Pink

Breast Cancer touches almost everyone.  Whether a family member, a friend, an acquaintance, coworker, or a teacher – most likely someone you know will be diagnosed.  In 2011 there were 230,480 new invasive cases of breast cancer* and 39,520 deaths.  Breast cancer accounts for 1 in 3 cancer cases for women in the United States, and 1 in 8 will develop the disease. Women who had early onset breast cancer (under 40 years in age at diagnosis) are 3 times more likely to develop subsequent cancers and 4.5 times more likely to have breast cancer return after initial treatment.

The importance of awareness
Survival rates are significantly higher when the cancer is detected in its earliest stages.  According to the American Cancer Society:

“Five-year relative survival is lower among women with a more advanced stage at diagnosis. …, 5-year relative survival is 99% for localized disease, 84% for regional disease, and 23% for distant-stage disease. Larger tumor size at diagnosis is also associated with decreased survival.”

Raising money through Breast Cancer Awareness campaigns helps organizations to:
  •     Reduce risk by educating women on risk factors.
  •     Support early detection for all women.
  •     Fund research for cures, causes and treatment.
  •     Advocate for better quality care for all women.
