Members of Gamma Sigma Sigma and USG will be wearing pink shirts today to show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and for those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
“Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States, aside from skin cancer,” according to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the United States during the year. Approximately 1,910 new cases are expected in men. The ACS also reports that an estimated 40,610 breast cancer deaths are expected in 2009 (40,170 women, 440 men).
