Did you know the five-year survival rate of
breast cancer is over 90 percent when caught early? Do you know when or how to be screened
for breast cancer? According to the American Cancer Society there is no
sure way to prevent breast cancer. However, there are things all women
can do that might reduce their risk and help increase the odds that if
cancer does occur, it will be found at an early, more treatable stage.
