Breast Cancer Awareness in OctoberJoin RSCNJ in the fight against breast cancer

Each year, approximately 230,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and close to 40,000 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 to learn more about the disease and what is being done to fight it.

You can also make a difference by visiting and signing up for the Point Pleasant Beach walk on Sunday, October 15. 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.
