Kick Breast Cancer Goodbye
My sweet grandmother passed away from complications due to breast cancer many years ago. I remember her mastectomy and I remember sensing the fear of those closest around her. She fought ten brave years but lost her battle in 1999.
Can you name eight women in your life who are very special to you? I'm sure it's easy to most of us: Mom, Freda, Ashley, Melissa, Tammy, Shea, Marsha and Bethany.
Sadly, the chances are really good that you will lose one person for every eight you know due to breast cancer.
While advancements have been made, deaths associated to breast cancer illness is still high.
In 2015, it is estimated that among U.S. women there will be*:
- 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer
- 40,290 breast cancer deaths
