[ARCHIVED] October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month



October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!


Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States, except for skin cancers. It is about 30% (or 1 in 3) of all new female cancers each year. 

The American Cancer Society's estimates for breast cancer in the United States for 2022 are: 

  • About 287,850 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women. 
  • About 51,400 new cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) will be diagnosed.  
  • About 43,250 women will die from breast cancer.

"I'm not embarrassed to tell you [that I had breast cancer] cause I'm happy to be here"  - Commissioner Beverly Williams

“I’m here today because I refused to be unhappy. I took a chance.” – Wanda Sykes
