- More Early Detection and Effective Treatment - Currently, about 70% of women 40 and older receive regular mammograms, the single most effective screening tool to detect breast cancer early. Since 1990, early detection and effective treatment have resulted in a 33% decline in breast cancer mortality in the U.S.
- More Hope - In 1980, the 5-year relative survival rate for women diagnosed with early stage breast cancer (cancer confined to the breast) was about 74%. Today, the number is 98%.
- More Research - The federal government now devotes more than $850 million each year to breast cancer research, treatment and prevention (compared to $30 million in 1982).
- More Survivors - Currently there are about 3 million breast cancer survivors, the largest group of cancer survivors in the U.S.
