I don't think there are any of us that can say that our lives haven't been touched in some way by cancer. Personally, my aunt died from breast cancer, and I have a few friends that have survived it. It is a growing concern, and one that you will want to educate yourself about as much as possible.
Did you know that breast cancer is second only to lung cancer in all reported cancer
cases, accounting for a little more than 10 percent of cancer diagnoses
around the world? Women are about 100 times more likely to develop the
disease than men; however, the survival rates are about the same
regardless of the patient’s sex. About 519,000 people died from the
disease in 2004.
Knowing the facts about breast cancer is so important, and spreading awareness about breast cancer is vital too!
breast cancer logo around so much! The pink ribbon has symbolized the fight against breast cancer since the
early 90s when the Susan G. Komen Foundation handed them out at a New
York City foot race. Today this beautiful pink ribbon can be seen just about anywhere in the world, and I think that is a wonderful thing.
Spread the word about breast cancer, because you don't know how many lives you could save!
