According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, one in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime and each year more than 40,500 women die from the disease. Those numbers equate to one woman being diagnosed every 2 minutes and another woman dying every 13 minutes.
While breast cancer affects predominantly women, an estimated 2,470 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 460 will die each year.
At Briotix Health, our mission is to improve employee health. We understand that employee health is more than just safety and wellness at the workplace. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and support for those who have battled the disease, Briotix Health is going PINK. You will notice a pink ribbon added to our logo and several other images modified with the color pink.
Research indicates early detection is the key to preventing breast cancer. The National Breast Cancer Foundation has created a helpful guide about the signs and symptoms of breast cancer which can be downloaded for free from their website.
