Will you be the one in three women diagnosed with some form of cancer during your lifetime?
If not, you will know her. She may be your friend, neighbor, mother, sister or even your daughter.
An estimated 843,820 women will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in 2016. More than 352,550 of these women will be diagnosed with breast cancer or some type of gynecologic cancer.
According to the American Cancer Society:
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime.
One in 37 women will get endometrial cancer.
One in 75 women will get ovarian cancer.
More than 60,050 new cases of uterine cancer (uterine sarcoma) are diagnosed yearly.
More than 12,990 new cases of cervical cancer are diagnosed yearly.
The good news is that women’s cancer death rates are going down thanks to early detection and medical advances made possible by charities like The Mary Kay Foundation.
