Breast Cancer Awareness Month 

The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. It’s important to raise awareness on the impacts of breast cancer. Since 1985, individuals and families impacted by breast cancer have come together to spread awareness for the many people affected by breast cancer. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is also a very sensitive and hard reminder to those who have suffered and those who lost friends and family.


According to the data collected from, 

In 2022, an estimated 290,560 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in the U.S., along with 51,400 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. An estimated 43,780 people will lose their lives to metastatic breast cancer.

About 1 in 8 U.S. women and 1 in 833 U.S. men will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lives.

As of 2020, there were 2.26 million global cases of breast cancer, making it the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world. 685,000 of those diagnosed have died.
