FACTS & FIGURES from the American Cancer Society – In 2013, an estimated 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed among US women, as well as an estimated 64,640 additional cases of in situ breast cancer.
That year, approximately 39,620 US women were expected to die from breast cancer. Only lung cancer accounts for more cancer deaths in women.
Breast cancer incidence rates are highest in non-Hispanic white women, followed by African American women and are lowest among Asian/Pacific Islander women. In contrast, breast cancer death rates are highest for African American women, followed by non-Hispanic white women. Breast cancer death rates are lowest for Asian/Pacific Islander women. Breast cancer incidence and death rates also vary by state.
NEW “LIMITED EDITION” ITEMS in SUPPORT of Breast Cancer Awareness Month are now available!!! Join us in our #ThinkFxckingPINK Campaign to increase awareness of this disease so that we can put an end to late stage diagnosis and finally Fuck Cancer. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps necessary to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and need your help!
To honor all the WARRIORS who have lost their lives, all who are currently in the FIGHT and those who SURVIVED, we would like to show our continued support!
