Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Do you know someone that’s been affected by breast cancer? Sadly the majority of you will say yes. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the NuView team have come together to show support and raise awareness for “Pinktober”.


Shocking breast cancer statistics:*

  • About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
  • In 2016, an estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 61,000 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer.
  • About 2,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2016. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
  • In 2016, there are more than 2.8 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment.


If you live in the Central Florida area, come out to join our team at the Making Strides of Orlando 5K on Saturday, October 29th at Lake Eola. Click here for additional event details.

The American Cancer Society hosts Making Strides walks all around the country, each one driven by the local community. The level of community involvement makes them unlike any other breast cancer events in the US. When you participate in a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk, you are sharing your passion and raising funds to help save more lives from breast cancer.

Educate yourself on the causes and risk factors associated with breast cancer along with prevention advice.
