Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
March 14, 2016
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created.
We are proud of our contribution to some real victories:
- More early detection and effective treatment– Currently, about 70 percent of women 40 and older receive regular mammograms, the single most effective screening tool to find breast cancer early. Since 1990, early detection and effective treatment have resulted in a 34 percent decline in breast cancer mortality in the U.S.
- More hope –In 1980, the 5-year relative survival rate for women diagnosed with early stage breast cancer (cancer confined to the breast) was about 74 percent. Today, that number is 99 percent.
- More research – The federal government now devotes more than $850 million each year to breast cancer research, treatment and prevention (compared to $30 million in 1982).
- More survivors – Currently, there are about 3 million breast cancers survivors, the largest group of cancer survivors in the U.S.
