We Race Because…

  • One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. In Oregon and SW Washington, it is one in seven.
  • Breast cancer knows no boundaries - age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location
  • 63 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed every week, and 11 people will die right here. 
  • Over $30 million has provided local care services and research.
  • 75% of our funds go towards saving local lives - $19.8 million in early detection, survivor and fighter support, and advocacy.
  • 25% is pooled with other affiliates to fund promising research, including $12.2 million  to local research institutions - Providence Cancer Center and OHSU Knight Cancer institute.
  • Your participation and donations / fundraising help us fight these statistics together. Since 1981, the 5-year relative survival rate, when breast cancer is diagnosed at an early stage and confined to the breast, was about 74%. Today, it is 99%. The death rate has declined by 37%.

Today, there is uncertainty with healthcare. Let’s stay together in our fight against breast cancer. Participate and donate now to will help those who desperately need a mammogram, access to treatment, support or more in the coming year.
