E4 Health October Service Flyer- Breast Cancer Awareness


  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women – one in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • One woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes – it’s the second leading cause of cancer death among women.
  • Although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,600 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 440 will die each year.
  • While these statistics are frightening, it’s important to keep in mind that over 2.8 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today – and one of the goals of Breast Cancer Awareness month is to see this number rise.

Knowledge is power, and there are steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones. Early detection is the best protection. Millions of women are surviving the disease thanks in part to regular screenings and improvements in the quality and number of treatment options.
