Each year, approximately 252,710 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer and close to 40,500 women will die from breast cancer. Breast cancer mortality rates have declined by 35 percent since 1989, largely due to increased awareness of the disease and earlier screening and detection procedures.

Reproductive Science Center of New Jersey supports the American Cancer Society and research to help decrease breast cancer mortality rates. Visit Cancer.org/FightBreastCancer to learn more about the disease and what is being done to fight it.

You can also make a difference by signing up for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer at Point Pleasant Beach on Sunday, October 20. The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting more than 300 communities to finish the fight.
