Statistics given through the National Cancer Institute state that approximately 211,240 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2005.

A woman’s chance of developing breast cancer increases with age.  In the U.S., a woman has a 1 in 7 chance of developing breast cancer in her lifetime.

Over 40,000 women will die of breast cancer this year.  A woman’s chance of dying of this disease is 1 in 33 or 3%, a rate that is fortunately on the decline.
