Requesting a small donation of just $10, to date Elle Marie is proud to have raised over $25,000 towards this important cause.
According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), breast cancer is second only to skin cancer as the most common cancer in the United States among women. It follows lung cancer as the second leading cause of cancer death in women. About 1 in 8 women will have invasive breast cancer sometime during her life. Breast cancer death rates have been declining, possibly due to the result of early detection and better treatment. As of January 2019, there are approximately 3.1 million women with a history of breast cancer in the United States, including those women still being treated and those who have completed treatment. About 268,600 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2019. About 62,930 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be found (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer). Sadly, breast cancer will claim the lives of about 41,760 women this year.
