“Getting cancer can become the beginning of living. The search for one’s own being, the discovery of the life one needs to live, can be one of the strongest weapons against disease.” -Lawrence Leshan
More often than not, if you ask someone if breast cancer has affected their life in some way, the answer will sadly be “yes”. Whether it was your own struggle for survival or it was breast cancer affecting your mother, sister, grandmother or best friend, the scary fact is that breast cancer is a very real and serious disease. There are about 190,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer this year – and that’s only counting American women! Risk factors for having breast cancer can increase if you’re a woman, and also vary based on your age and genetics.
What do you know about breast cancer? Are you ready for some scary but real statistics? One out of every eight women will develop invasive breast cancer at one point in life. In 2011, 2,140 new cases of breast cancer were developed, meaning breast cancer is affecting men too! Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in American women. These are truly scary and very sad statistics, which truly add to the need to spread breast cancer awareness and raise funds to help fight back!
Aren’t you ready to join the fight? October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and InvitationBox.com has teamed up with Doc Milo and Noteworthy Collections to help join the fight against Breast Cancer. We are now offering a brand new collection of breast cancer awareness stationery which features breast cancer awareness self-inking stamps, weekly calendar tear pads and notecards that help you spread awareness while making a donation to assist in breast cancer research.
