Why do I walk.....
How many women get breast cancer?
The American Cancer Society’s estimates for breast cancer in women in the United States for 2013 are:
The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer during her life is about 1 in 8. The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 36. Breast cancer death rates have been going down. This is probably the result of finding the cancer earlier and better treatment. Right now there are more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
I walk and pray to find a cure... I walk and pray that we will find a cure and Breast Cancer will not touch my girls.
