October is breast cancer awareness month and there is some good news about the impact of bring awareness to this horrible disease.

The American Cancer Society reported yesterday (October 3rd) that the rate of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. fell by almost 40 percent between 1989 and 2015, which they said amounts to more than 322,000 lives saved. Researchers pointed to improvements in treatment and early detection as being behind the decline.

Still, breast cancer remains the most common cancer among women in the U.S., and is the second-leading cause of cancer death after lung cancer.
