COURAGE THROUGH CANCER FUND
October is earmarked internationally as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with an annual campaign to increase awareness of this disease and to raise funds for the research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure. What a powerful mission for this horrible disease that truly impacts countless families in the world.
Check out some of the facts and figures about breast cancer, a cancer like other cancers that does not discriminate and can be swift and punishing:
- In 2022 an estimated 287,850 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 51,400 cases of non-invasive cases are projected.
- About 1 in 8 US women (about 13%) will develop invasive breast cancer sometime in their lives.
- Approximately 43,250 women in the US are expected to die from this disease in 2022, higher than those from any other cancer besides lung cancer.
With so many charities worldwide focusing on awareness, research, and treatment of this disease, Cable Tie Express through its CTE Gives Back! Program has chosen this month to target our charity dollars to one specific fund: The Wallace, Shatsky, Blackburn Courage Through Cancer Fund.
