Breast Cancer Care is the only United Kingdom wide charity providing care, information and support to people affected by breast cancer.

Treatment has also improved, particularly with the advent of more effective therapies following breast cancer surgery. This is even more important for patients who are at high risk for the disease. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women; approximately one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Currently, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in females. Breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than among women. "Breast cancer is easier to treat when caught early, yet we know according to Cancer Care Ontario only 63 per cent of women in our region are getting screened through the OBSP for early signs". Only lung cancer kills more women. They are also given information on referral for genetic counseling to determine if personal and family history indicates a benefit from genetic testing.

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) is an excellent source of up-to-date evidence-based guidelines for breast cancer detection, prevention and risk reduction.

Of course, following the Three Bus does not guarantee you won't develop breast cancer at some point in your life. Events such as the CIBC Run for the Cure work to further research while promoting and supporting those affected by breast cancer.

The CDC recommends women age 50 to 74 get mammograms every two years. "I'm really looking forward to running this vehicle and seeing if we can make this thing fly at over 330 miles per hour while brining awareness for breast cancer". Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live 10 more years or longer. To put it another way, 110 Americans will die today from metastatic breast cancer.
