WHC Team Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness

By October 31, 2017 No Comments

WHC supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month since Breast Cancer affects many of our family and friends.

In 2017, an estimated 255,180 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men and women, along with 63,410 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer (also known as carcinoma in situ). About 40,610 women are expected to die in 2017 from breast cancer, though there has been a decrease in death rates since 1989, with larger decreases in women under 50. These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advancements, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness.
