About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12.4%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2018, an estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 63,960 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. Approximately 2,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2018. (www.breastcancer.org)
It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the month to encourage friends, family and fellow Philoptochos sisters to get tested and to support those who are undergoing treatment, to pray and to hope! It's time for us to stand up against cancer and hope that one day (very soon) there will be a cure.
