In 2009, an estimated 192,370 women in the United States were diagnosed with breast cancer and about 1,910 men were diagnosed. The American Cancer Society spends $130 million a year on cancer research. The American Cancer Society Making Strides events raise funds and awareness to fight breast cancer and provide hope to people facing the disease. In 2009, nearly 700,000 walkers across the country collected more than $60 million to help create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays (American Cancer Society, 2010). Our support will help American Cancer Society educate the public about reducing the risks and early detection, help people get well with hands-on support and service, and fight back by rallying communities and advocating for cancer policies.
