About 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetimes, making breast cancer one of the most common cancers in the United States. More than 200,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.
Breast cancer used to carry a stigma and was generally viewed as a very private disease. With the campaign to bring breast cancer into the open for increased awareness and to encourage women to get tested, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has taken off. Millions of people now participate in breast cancer awareness events worldwide.
Lance Armstrong’s LIVESTRONG campaign brought about the widespread use of the rubber wristband as an awareness and fundraising tool for cancer victims and researchers. Today, the cancer wristband or “cancer bracelet” is used by educators, survivors, advocates, family members, researchers, and community organizers to indicate support, spread awareness, or raise funds. With the takeoff of breast cancer-related events, breast cancer awareness bracelets have also become a key part of the fight.
