With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we at Principle Auto Group wanted to join the campaign to bring awareness. Each year, more than 220,000 women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer. So, it’s very likely that either you or someone you know has been affected.

In recent years, breast cancer death rates have been declining. This is in large part due to better screening and early detection, continuously improving treatment options as well as increased awareness.

In our effort to bring more awareness, here are some facts about breast cancer:

  • In the U.S. alone, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
  • The lifetime risk of breast cancer for men is about 1 in 1,000.
  • About 95% of all breast cancers in the U.S. occur in women 40 and older.
  • Mammograms can help reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer by 20 to 40 percent.
  • In the U.S. today, there are more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors – the largest group of survivors of any cancer.
  • Every 19 seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.

Both San Antonio and Memphis have several organizations supporting the fight against breast cancer including Susan G. Komen, Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation and American Cancer Society. We encourage you to visit their websites for more information about how you can be involved.

If you have any questions, we’d love to hear them. Contact us online today.
