The American Cancer Society has predicted a bad news for women, which states that in the present year as many as 207,090 women will be detected with breast cancer. But the good news is that there are more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors presently in the United States.
The American Cancer Society says that breast cancer is one of the widespread cancers in the US. One out of eight women can develop invasive breast cancer and sooner the cancer is diagnosed, better are the chances of survival.
The 40-year-old Olga Garcia, a home health helper was told to undergo a mammogram. She said that she wanted to get this done for a long time and expressed happiness over the opportunity.
Garcia along with eight other women will receive free mammograms on Saturday when a mobile van offering the facility will visit Richmond Heights.
Fiftyone-year-old Ivory was diagnosed with breast cancer in an annual mammogram and she bravely fought with the disease and formed a group called Florida Breast Health.
She says that those women who do not have insurance and are from the low-income group suffer from poor diagnosis and the main aim of the group is to help those women who have no access to health care facilities.
