Did you know it is estimated that in the year 2016, there will be approximately 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed in the U.S. alone? Or that 40,450 women suffering from breast cancer will lose their battle with the disease? These and other staggering statistics regarding breast cancer can be found on the Susan G. Komen website. The work Susan G. Komen performs is a key part in the fight against breast cancer. Susan G. Komen helps fund the research for a cure, and supports women who are uninsured or underinsured to receive adequate care. In addition, they also educate and spread awareness of the deadly disease. Although not everyone will battle breast cancer in their lifetime, there is a very large likelihood that someone you know and love will.
