An estimated 178,480 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in American women in 2007 alone. As screening programs have become more common, many cases of breast cancer are being detected in the earlier stages of the disease. Finding breast cancer in an early stage is critical for successful treatment of the disease. The five-year survival rate is 95 percent when the disease is discovered while still confined to the breast. Since the early 1980s, the diagnoses of early stage cancer and pre-cancerous conditions have increased significantly, while the diagnoses of cases at the advanced stages have remained stable or dropped slightly.
About Susan G. Komen for the Cure:
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, the promise one sister made to another became the foundation of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Due in part to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, Komen for the Cure has invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill their promise to end breast cancer forever. Komen for the Cure has become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. For more information about Susan G.
