National Breast Cancer Coalition Survey Reveals That Lack of Commitment and Funding Impede the Fight Against Breast Cancer
Date:10/31/2008

breast cancer in their

lifetime.

Lack of Industry Commitment to Profits Over Saving Lives

-- 86 percent of consumers agree that drug companies are not as committed

as they should be to saving lives; instead their focus on generating

profit is hurting the fight to eliminate breast cancer.

Federal Government Is Still Seen As the Entity That Should Be Held Responsible For Research Funding

-- A third of women surveyed (34 percent) believe that the federal

government should be the most responsible for research funding,

surpassing the role and responsibility of breast cancer foundations,

research organizations and drug companies. In addition, the survey

revealed that 81 percent of those surveyed agree that lack of

governmental funding is detrimental to the overall fight against breast

cancer.

Myths and Misperceptions Continue to Pervade Women's Understanding about the Disease

-- Women continue to mistakenly believe that one in eight women will be

diagnosed with breast cancer each year (86 percent).

-- In fact, the actual statistic is based on lifetime risk and is

correctly stated as "1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast

cancer during their lifetime."(i)

-- Women continue to mistakenly believe the most common predictors of

breast cancer are a genetic pre-disposition and family history (75

percent) with nearly 2 in 3 incorrectly believing the myth that 75

percent of those diagnosed with breast cancer have a family history of

the disease.

-- In fact, over two thirds of women diagnosed have no known risk

factor. Even though having an inherited mutation in certain genes is

the most potent risk factor, the National Cancer Institute states:

"these genes are rare
