One in eight women is ONE TOO MANY!


BREAST CANCER

Recent statistics show that the number of younger women diagnosed with breast cancer is growing by the year, with one in eight women expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. In fact, doctors are now recommending self-examinations for women as young as 25 – all the more reason more women are taking a proactive approach to their breast health with Pink Luminous Breast.

JUST THE FACTS


  • One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
  • Each year, an estimated 246,000+ women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • On average, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer  every 2 minutes – with one female fatality every 13 minutes.
  • There are over 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States today.
  • Breast cancer fatality rates  have steadily been declining since about 1990 –  due in no small part to better screening and early detection, increased awareness, and improving treatment options – but still remains the greatest cancer threat to women under 40.

*According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing help and hope to people affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services.
