Plantation, FL (PRWEB) October 02, 2014
Breast cancer is one of the more popular cancers that gets a lot of exposure and funding but until this disease is eradicated permanently, every dollar counts. According to the National Cancer Institute, “every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and one woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes.” When it is found early:
- In the localized stage, the five year survival rate is 98%.
- Over 2.9 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the US today.
Early detection is key to tackling the disease to see what physical abnormalities may exist if found and then start treating the symptoms as soon as possible. It is important to create a Detection Plan which can be found on earlydetectionplan.org that shows detailed steps in starting to take preventative measure with regards to an individual’s health.
Uniform Advantage’s Reason for Giving
