In 2016, an estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S alongside about 2,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer in men (yup, you read that right!) Woman have a 1 in 8 chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer over their lifetime, and for this reason, we ask for your help and support during PINKtober.
