Since 1982, Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer and continue to support multiple steps in detection, research, and treatment.Komen has helped transform how the world talks about breast cancer and helped turn millions of breast cancer patients into survivors.
- More early detectionand effective treatment Currently, about 70 percent of women 40 and older receive regular mammograms, the single most effective screening tool to find breast cancer early. Since 1990, early detection and effective treatment have resulted in a 33 percent decline in breast cancer mortality in the U.S.
- More hope In 1980, the 5-year relative survival rate for women diagnosed with early stage breast cancer (cancer confined to the breast) was about 74 percent. Today, that number is 99 percent.
- More research The federal government now devotes more than $850 million each year to breast cancer research, treatment and prevention (compared to $30 million in 1982).
- More survivors Currently, there are about 3 million breast cancers survivors, the largest group of cancer survivors in the U.S.
