Breast Cancer Awareness is Key! Are we winning? The battle that started in 1989 regarding breast cancer research and treatment and has represented a 40% decrease in morbidity.
But more work is needed! Breast cancer awareness is the first vital step in getting women checked and screened for any potential problems. Know the symptoms, let your friends, family and colleagues know the symptoms and help stop this disease from killing thousands of women every year. Early detection is vital! More research for screening techniques and treatments will help make this disease manageable.
