Unfortunately, most of us have a loved one or friend who’s been affected by breast cancer. Every year, hundreds of thousands of women in the U.S. are diagnosed with this terrible disease. According to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, by the end of 2019, there will have been an estimated 268,600 people diagnosed in this year alone. Statistics say one in eight women will get breast cancer in their lives and in Missouri, breast cancer is the third most diagnosed type of cancer.
