Each year, approximately 252,710 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer and close to 40,500 women will die from the disease. Thankfully, breast cancer mortality rates have declined by 35 percent since 1989, largely due to increased awareness of the disease and earlier screening and detection procedures.
Reproductive Science Center of New Jersey supports the American Cancer Society and research to help decrease breast cancer mortality rates.
