Infographic: Code Pink – National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Cancer is the epidemic of modern times. Unlike other diseases that have plagued people throughout history like tuberculosis and polio, we haven’t yet discovered a vaccine against it. One of the most common manifestations of this disease is breast cancer, which affects not only one in eight women, but also thousands of men in the United States. In fact, only lung cancer is more destructive. And if someone you love gets breast cancer, it will cost more than just their health: treatment typically costs between $50,000 and $100,000, the latter of which is more than twice the annual median U.S. income.

Early detection is the key to surviving breast cancer, so share this graphic with people you love to help them learn stuff about beating cancer before it has a chance.

The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is a collaboration of national public service organizations, visit nbcam.org for more information.

    Thanks for posting such an important infographic. I know many women that have had breast cancer and I lost my mother in law a few years ago due to breast cancer. It seems to be more and more common and awareness and early detection could not be more important.
