1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. But the good news is, there is hope. When caught in its earliest, localized stages, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%.
Advances in early detection and treatment methods have significantly increased breast cancer survival rates in recent years, and there are currently over 3.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
This Breast Cancer Awareness Month we show our support to all those fighting breast cancer and honor the survivors.
