Breast cancer is a leading causes of cancer deaths for American women. Did you know that:
· There will be almost 50,000 deaths from breast cancer this year; about 400 of them will be men.
· You are most at risk for breast cancer by being a woman and getting older
· A new case of breast cancer is diagnosed every 2 minutes
· Over 250,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed annually in American women
· 85% of all breast cancer diagnoses have no family history of the disease
· Death rates from breast cancer have been decreasing for 20 years

In America, breast cancer is the most 2nd most common cancer (after skin cancer) and also the second leading cause of cancer death in American women. Although the rate of breast cancer diagnosis has increased, the good news is that there has been a drop in the overall breast cancer mortality rate since the early 1990's. Women racial and ethnic groups have both lower breast cancer incidence rates than white women.

A Month to Remember Breast Cancer

October1985 was the first National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The observance started as a single week to raise awareness about breast cancer research and treatment options. Last year, we commemorated the 25th annual National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Although the movement has made good progress in the awareness of breast cancer, there is still a long way to go before eradicating the disease. National breast cancer organizations are dedicated to educating women about taking ownership of their breast health through regular self-breast examinations regular doctor’s appointments and annual mammograms with their healthcare provider.

There are several national public service organizations, government agencies, and professional medical associations that work together to increase breast cancer research, share information, and increase access to critical mammograms. October may be known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but breast cancer awareness is mission for many organizations and healthcare providers every day of the year.

Pink Ribbons to Show Support

The pink ribbon has grown to become the international symbol of breast cancer awareness. In 1991, the Susan G. Komen Foundation gave out pink ribbons at its race of breast cancer survivors. In 1992 Alexandra Penney, Self Magazine’s editor, and Evelyn Lauder, from Estee Lauder, created a pink ribbon campaign and distributed them at New York City retail stores.

Today, pink ribbons can be found everywhere. The first breast cancer awareness stamp in America, featuring a pink ribbon, was sold 1996. Every October many products feature pink ribbons, are dyed pink, or are otherwise sold with a portion of the profits donated to support breast cancer research.
