|I want to start off breast cancer awareness month with a reminder to get a mammogram if you haven't.... It could save your life.|
Breast cancer awareness also means to me, to be aware that there are 1000's and 1000's of women living with Stage 4 breast cancer. There is no cure for them yet. They are old, young, grandmothers, mothers, married and single women.
Estimated statistics from the National Institute of Health for 2010:
|New cases: 207,090 (female); 1,970 (male)|
|Deaths: 39,840 (female); 390 (male)|
