Dee's Kids is a non-profit, community based organization dedicated to promoting programs and providing support to patients, survivors and family members affected by breast cancer.
According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. The chance that breast cancer will be responsible for a woman's death is about 1 in 36 (about 3%). Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1989, with larger decreases in women younger than 50. These decreases are believed to be the result of earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well as improved treatment.
At this time there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Dee's Kids, Inc. is dedicated to helping this number increase.
