This year, it is estimated that 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among women in the United States according to the American Cancer Society. Approximately, one in eight women have a chance of developing invasive breast cancer during her lifetime and it’s the second leading cause of cancer death in women.

“Pink Army is an effective and enjoyable way to spread the word throughout our community about the importance of prevention, screening and early detection of breast cancer,” says noted Breast , General and Vascular Surgeon Sharad Patel, MD. “Early diagnoses of breast cancer can mean the difference between life and death. Early and accurate diagnoses can mean faster time to treatment and cure.”
