Some Breast Cancer Stats
In 2011, there were more than 2.6 million breast cancer survivors in the US!!!
- Affects 1 in 8 Women
- Affects 1 in 1,000 Men
- 230,480 New Cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in 2011-12
- 39,520 Women were expected to succumb to breast cancer in 2011-12
- Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women - Just under 30%
- A Women’s risk of breast cancer is approximately double if she has a first-degree relative who has or had been diagnosed
This cause is very dear to me and my staff as my mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer 10 years ago. Most of your are unaware that the Annandale Premier Cup also gives a percentage of it’s proceeds to Cancer Research every year. Totaling over $40,000 from the last 3 years.
