One in eight American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Without a cure in the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women worldwide will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 10 million could die from it. Because of great improvements in the treatment of breast cancer over the past 20 years, the number of breast cancer survivors continues to rise. There are about 2.5 million survivors alive in the U.S. today. Chances are you know someone who has been affected by it. So we’re very proud to join the cause as agency of record for The Northeast Ohio Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. We’ll be responsible for developing materials to increase awareness and drive more participation for the organization’s largest event, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure to be held on Sept. 11, 2010. As the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, Susan G. Komen is working together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. We couldn’t be more excited to work with this great cause and look forward to helping expand the awareness of and participation in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® to the greater Cleveland area.
