Unfortunately, it is very rare to encounter an individual who hasn’t been affected in some way by Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. On average, every 2 minutes a women is diagnosed with Breast Cancer. In addition, 1 woman dies of Breast Cancer every 13 minutes.
