Early detection, after all, can significantly reduce the severity and risk that breast cancer poses to patients.

While this disease impacts a devastating number of us, there is still much hope: Groundbreaking research is being done every day to prevent, cure, and lessen the symptoms of this disease, and there are also countless organizations out there that are working to make patients' and survivors' lives easier.
