Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Statistics in Breast Cancer

October marks National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which focuses on increasing awareness and highlights the importance of early detection. Breast Cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in women with 40,000 deaths related to breast cancer in 2016. However, millions of women are surviving and thriving with breast cancer when found and treated early.
