October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

RSCNJ strives to increase breast cancer awareness to reduce deaths

The chance of a woman developing breast cancer during her life is about 1 in 8. Of the women who are diagnosed with breast cancer, 1 in 37 will lose their battle. But cancer death rates have been going down.

The decrease in breast cancer mortality could be a result of discovering the cancer early while it is most treatBreast Cancer Awarenessable. Early discovery of breast cancer most often happens due to awareness of the disease and its symptoms. Currently there are 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S.

Reproductive Science Center of New Jersey is proud to support the American Cancer Society in its research and awareness efforts to continue to reduce mortality rates.
