October is breast cancer awareness month. So we thought it would be fitting to share some facts with you about breast cancer.
Here are the Stats!
*According to the latest statistics ,it is estimated that 24,400 women and 210 men in Canada will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and that 5,000 women and 60 men will die from this disease in 2014.
*67 Canadian women are still being diagnosed with breast cancer everyday.
*Its beneficial to be breast aware. Early detection and screening saves lives.
*Regular screening can find earlier signs of breast cancer-including tumors that are too small to feel.In most cases,finding the disease earlier offers more effective treatment options and a better chance of survival.
Help us to combat this disease. Join us in the fight against breast cancer. We will be showing our support in the Woodstock Ontario area on October 4, 2014. To learn more about the convoy check out the convoy page.
