🎀 During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we wear pink to show support to those who have been diagnosed with, are battling, or are recovering from the disease 🎀
📣Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States, except for skin cancers. It is about 30% (or 1 in 3) of all new female cancers each year.
The American Cancer Society's estimates for breast cancer in the United States for 2023 are:
📍 About 297,790 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
📍 About 55,720 new cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) will be diagnosed.
📍 About 43,700 women will die from breast cancer.
Remember -- “The best protection is early detection.”
The first line of defense and perhaps the easiest, is yearly screenings.
