October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Did you know that when breast cancer is detected early, in the localized stage, the 5-year survival rate is 98%? While that’s great news, breast cancer continues to be the second leading cause of death in women with 40,000 deaths annually. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, and each year over 220,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with the disease.
