I hope you will enjoy the Dragon Boat Festival 2014 at Sarasota Florida, USA and the following are some Breast Cancer’s Facts from National Breast Cancer Foundation.


1.     One in every eight U.S women will get a breast cancer diagnosis in her lifetime

2.     Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women

3.     Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women

4.     Each year it is estimated that over 220,000 women in the U.S will be diagnosed with breast cancer

5.     More than 40,000 women in the U.S. will die from Breast Cancer

6.     Although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,150 men will get a diagnosis of breast cancer: some 410 will die each year

7.     Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since around 1990. Partly because of better screening, early detection, increased awareness and continually improving treatment options.

8.     In recent years, (perhaps coinciding with the decline in prescriptive hormone replacement therapy after menopause), a gradual reduction in female breast cancer incidence rates among women ages 50 and older was noticed.
