Breast Cancer Facts

31 Oct

 

 

Since 1975 we have had breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer has increased from 1 in 11 women to 1 in 8 women getting it. Men also get it. It is often genetic with me. Thirty percent of the breast cancer cases go on to become metastatic breast cancer.

Mike Malone from the MN Dept. of Health, an Epidemiologist states that 1 in 29 women die of breast cancer in St. Louis county. They go by averages and past data with epidemiology. 40,000 women die of breast cancer a year in the United States and 1,000 per day in the world.

We have spent lots of money on treatments with the same results. We need more research spent on the causes, the ways to prevent it, a vaccine, and ways to prevent metastatic breast cancer. We have lost enough lives. This is the second leading cause of death for women in the United States.

We have fund raised and spent billions of dollars on research, salaries, investing in foundation, new drugs and treatments, diagnostic tools. There is so much money that is unaccounted for and the federal government is little about it. There are scamers calling your house to make you an innocent victim. There are those claiming to be non-profits when they are not.

The National Breast Cancer Coalition in Washington DC wants to end breast cancer by 2020. Do you want to endorse them? Individuals, political representatives, and businesses can endorse them. By endorsing it means you want an end to this disease, you will educate yourself and others. http://www.breastcancerdeadline2020.org/about-nbcc/
