We have some numbers on breast cancer. Here they are:
Breast cancer is a complex disease that will affect 1 in 9 Canadian women during their lifetime.
In 2012, it is estimated that 22,700 Canadian women and 200 Canadian men will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
Every 13 minutes a woman dies of beast cancer, 77% of those women are over 50.
Approximately 1400 cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in men in 2000 and 400 of those men will die.
Breast cancer risk increases with age and every woman is at risk.
Again, these are 5 more facts/reasons we are helping. Please help us help!
