10 things you need to know about breast cancer

This article was in yesterday's edition of the Charlotte Observer, and I am sure has been featured in a number of magazines and newspapers all over the country since it's breast cancer awareness month. Pay particular attention to number 9----it's a good explanation and gives more realistic numbers about what your chances are of getting breast cancer. I am all for early detection, treatment and research, but the 1 in 8 statistic is just too easily used and often misinterpreted. Have a great day!
