MMG’s 2017 Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign
During the month of October, Modern Method Gunite, Inc. is conducting a campaign to raise money for breast cancer and to increase awareness of the disease. For every project that we complete in the month of October, MMG will donate a portion for Breast Cancer eradication. Every gift makes a difference; the cumulative effect of several small gifts can be very significant.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States, affecting 1 in 8 (or 12%) women in their lifetime. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS):
- An estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the United States, in 2016,
- An estimated 61,000 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed in 2016. CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer,
- An estimated 40,450 women will die from breast cancer in 2016 alone.
Luckily, breast cancer incidence rates in women began decreasing in 2000, and dropped by about 7% from 2002 to 2003. Furthermore, currently there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. These decreases and successful treatments are the direct result of research as well as medical advances, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness. For more information on prevention, screening, symptoms and treatment, please visit: breastcancer.org, nationalbreastcancer.org, and the bcrfcure.org to name a few.
