Did you know that 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime?

A woman's risk doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, or daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer and roughly 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history. Breast cancer affects everyone and anyone. It is the second most common type of cancer affecting nearly 250,000 women and 2,000 men each year.

This month is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and we at Doubleday Insurance Agency want to show our love and support for the men, women, and their families who are currently battling the disease, won the war or lost the fight. This October let's come together and celebrate the beautiful lives that were affected by this disease and let us continue to work to achieve the goal on finding a cure to win this battle.
