INFOGRAPHIC: Breast cancer statistics, figures, and risk

More people are surviving breast cancer, but the disease continues to kill more than 40,000 American women each year. Less than 73 percent of women get the recommended breast cancer screening tests, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Armed with the facts, you can take our pledge to know your risk and get the screening tests appropriate for you.

So go pink with us throughout October and take our pledge. Information is our best weapon against breast cancer.
