Breast cancer, your days are numbered…To make a donation to the Breast Cancer Research Fund, visit: http://www.bcrfcure.org or http://support.bcrfcure.org/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=22.For information, resources, and support programs, visit the American Cancer Society at www.cancer.org.

Breast Cancer Factoids:

  • About 1,990 men in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008.
  • Mammography is especially valuable as an early detection tool because it can identify breast cancer at an early stage, usually before physical symptoms develop when the disease is most treatable.
  • Research shows that early detection, when followed by appropriate treatment, saves lives and increases treatment options. The five-year survival rate for breast cancer is 98 percent among individuals whose cancer has not spread beyond the breast at the time of diagnosis.
  • Yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health.
