An estimated 1 in 8 women and 1 in 1,000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. In 2018, approximately 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women, and 2,550 cases will be diagnosed in men in the U.S., according to the American Cancer Society.

Did you know that the average cost of a wig for a person to wear after their hair has fallen out, due to cancer treatment is $50? Did you know that the average cost of a screening mammogram in Kentucky costs $100?

We are so thankful and excited that you have registered for the Lexington Race for the Cure, but how can you do more? How can you help someone with breast cancer? How can you help fund LOCAL programs that provide screenings, diagnostics, treatment support, education and survivorship programs?

 

The answer is by joining our fight and to start fundraising for the Lexington Race for the Cure!
