This year 40,450 moms will not celebrate Mother's Day. Because of breast cancer. 

But it does not have to be this way. In 2017, over 316,120 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Over 95% of those diagnosed early will survive and thrive. 

These sound like stats, not people. Not so. These are the moms giving hugs, holding your hand in the street, looking at you and knowing exactly how you feel. These are the people you love.  

The Brem Foundation needs YOU to bring us closer to a world where more moms get to celebrate Mother's Day. 

 

SURVIVAL SHOULD NOT BE THE ONLY METRIC

Cost of care and quality of life are very different for early- and late-stage breast cancer. A woman diagnosed at an early stage who needs a minimally invasive procedure and no other treatment has vastly different financial and quality-of-life costs than a woman who needs a bilateral mastectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation – even though they both survive.

BREAST CANCER GENES CAN BE PASSED FROM EITHER PARENT

Genetic mutations that increase a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer can be passed from her mother or her father.

THE #1 RISK FACTOR FOR BREAST CANCER IS BEING A WOMAN

A family history of breast cancer increases a woman’s risk of getting the disease, but most women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of breast cancer. 


A MAMMOGRAM IS JUST ONE OF MANY SCREENING OPTIONS

Other screening options—such as ultrasound, MRI, tomosynthesis, and molecular breast imaging—should be
utilized based on each woman’s risk factors.
