  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. It is the leading cause of death in women aged 35 to 65 years.(ii)

  • But there is hope…

  • Between 1990 and 2007, the mortality rate from breast cancer in the United States decreased by 31 percent, principally due to the contribution of mammographic screening and improved therapies.(iii)
  • Approximately 2.5 million women with a history of breast cancer living in America are alive today.(iv)
