At Tiptops, we’re busy throughout the month of October designing tees for breast cancer awareness. Many of our clients have gone PINK this month and ordered custom tees for fundraising events and casual days at the office. We support their efforts and want you to know how important breast cancer screening is for you and your family.
Here are four quick facts about breast cancer in the United States:
• Over 200,000 new cases of breast cancer are expected to occur every year.
• Many women in the U.S. are getting their first mammogram later than recommended, not having mammograms at recommended intervals or not receiving appropriate and timely follow-up of positive screening results. This may lead to more advanced tumor size and stage at diagnosis.
• There are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors alive in the U.S. today.
• One woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes, and one woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes in the U.S.
So when you see Tiptops Florida screen printing tees around town this month, be sure to remind the women you love to talk to their doctor about breast cancer. We care about you and the health of your family!
