Breast Cancer is the most common type of cancer found in women. And 1% of men actually develop breast cancer. Let's make every effort to raise awareness about the importance of finding breast cancer early and work together to spread the word about mammograms, and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
The Susan G. Komen organizations main focus is to end breast cancer. Do you know that 80 percent of all money raised is going directly to the cause? Did you know that there has been a 38 percent decrease in breast cancer mortality from 1989-2014?
