This is close to my heart - with my Aunt Ellen and my sister Heather having breast cancer, the reality hits home hard. I've already scheduled my first appt to get a mammogram due to my family history. Check yourself regularly and tell the doctor of any little bump - don't worry, they will check it with out question. Knowing early increases your chances of survival!!

A few facts about Breast Cancer.

Although the breast cancer diagnosis rate has increased since the early 1990s, the overall death rate from breast cancer has dropped.

It’s estimated that approximately $8.1 billion is spent in the United States each year on breast cancer treatment.

Breast cancer is the fifth leading cause of death in American women, following heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, and other respiratory illnesses.

Barring a cure, an estimated 5 million Americans will be diagnosed with breast cancer over the next 25 years. More than 1 million could die.

On average, mammography will detect about 80%-90% of breast cancers in women without symptoms.

About 70% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no known risk factors for it at all.
