Breast Cancer



Breast Cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in the United States, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.

The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is about 1 in 8. The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 37. Breast cancer death rates have been going down. This is probably the result of finding the cancer earlier and better treatment. Right now there are more than 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

For more information about breast cancer, how to find it early, and how to help finish the fight against the disease, visit our breast cancer information and resources or contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 anytime, day or night.

Domestic Violence

We feel safer when we think domestic violence happens somewhere else to someone else.

In reality, domestic violence occurs in our neighborhoods and in our families. Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence, regardless of race, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or economic status. Abusers control and terrorize our daughters, bosses, sisters, friends, and even our sons – who are most often abused by their male partners and sometimes their female partners.

There is a myth that women who are victims must have low self-esteem, but this is exactly that: a myth.








Domestic Violence

Continue to do your part to make the world safer for our aunts, colleagues, neighbors, and the next generation. Here is what you can do:

  • Continue to bring up the issues of controlling partners, encourage healthy relationships, and talk about what safety at home means wherever and whenever possible. You never know who you might reach and whose safety you might increase.
  • Never tolerate a friend or relative belittling or controlling his or her partner. Tell your friend or relative that what they are doing is not okay.
  • Donate new items and gift cards to a local shelter throughout the year. Your gift can ensure that moms residing in an abuse shelter feel supported on Mother's Day and children wear a new backpack filled with school supplies when they walk down the shelter steps to their first day of school.
