October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and many of us have been affected or know someone that has been affected by this terrible disease. Did you know that 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime?

Getting regular screening tests is the best method for lowering your risk of the disease, but if you have experienced any of these symptoms, it’s worth

Here are some eye-opening breast cancer statistics from Susan G. Komen for the Cure:

In 2013, it is estimated that among U.S. women there will be:

  • 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer (This includes new cases of primary breast cancer among survivors, but not recurrence of original breast cancer among survivors.)
  • 64,640 new cases of in situ breast cancer (This includes ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS), of those, about 85 percent will be DCIS. DCIS is a non-invasive breast cancer and LCIS is a condition that increases the risk of invasive breast cancer. Learn more about DCIS and LCIS.)
  • 39,620 breast cancer deaths

We can continue to play a part in defeating this killer by raising awareness in our community and around the state. We want to help do that by giving you a forum to share your personal stories.

Please leave a comment below and tell us who you want to raise breast cancer awareness for. We’ll be reading some of these dedications on air throughout the month.

Thank you.
