The Future After Breast Cancer

My cancer was discovered at my mammogram on my 63rd birthday. My husband couldn't have been more loving and supportive. He drained the surgery site two times a day, took me to every oncologist visit, sat with me during chemo, then took me home to rest.

Take the Pledge to Prevent Breast Cancer in Young Women!

According to a study recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, there has been a 2% annual increase in invasive breast cancer in U.S. women under 40 over the last three decades. A second study by the American Cancer Society shows that invasive breast tumors in women under 45 years old increased by 11.8% between 2007 and 2011 alone.

This is especially alarming because young women are less likely to perform regular self-exams or seek out mammograms, and because cancers diagnosed in younger women are often more aggressive and therefore more life-threatening.

Whether you are a woman over 40 who has a daughter, niece, grandchild or other young relative, or if you're a young woman yourself, you can make a difference in slowing down this disturbing statistical trend. Until there is a cure, prevention and awareness are our most powerful weapons.

Take the pledge today: Commit to raising awareness about ways every woman can lower her risk of being faced with a battle against breast cancer.


OUR FAVORITE PROJECTS
Protect Girls from Cervical Cancer
Cervical cancer is the second most common form of cancer among women, with nearly half a million new cases diagnosed annually. While routine screenings have greatly reduced mortality rates among women in the United States, cervical cancer is still a common and deadly disease in many developing nations where regular screenings aren't a reality. Over 270,000 people die from cervical cancer every year and more than 80% of those deaths occur in developing countries. Donations through this Gift That Gives More™ protects three girls from cervical cancer with immunizations through Partners in Health. Thank you!

Help protect girls from the threat of developing cervical cancer later in life.
