It’s October and pink ribbons are popping everywhere! This month look for items that donate a portion of their proceeds to finding a cure for breast cancer. Chances are you or someone you know has been affected by breast cancer in some way.
- About 1 in 8 women in the United States (12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
- A woman’s risk of breast cancer approximately doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. About 20-30% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have a family history of breast cancer.
- About 70-80% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. These occur due to genetic abnormalities that happen as a result of the aging process and life in general, rather than inherited mutations.
- In 2010, there were more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S.
