It’s a new year at For The Girls, and we want to kick things off by simply reminding everyone that there’s no better time than now to start your annual breast cancer screening.

According to an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S. in 2019. But early detection is the powerful tool in the fight against breast cancer; in fact, women whose breast cancer is detected at an early stage have a 93 percent or higher survival rate in the first five years.

We’ve already discussed some breast cancer screening FAQs, and covered some of the risk factors. Now let’s all start 2020 off as informed as we can be, and as supportive as we need to be. Know someone who needs a powerful symbol of her journey with breast cancer? Our pink For the Girls chimes are a beautiful reminder of hope, all while supporting research to find a cure.
