Download Breast Cancer Awareness Month Resources

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  According to the American Cancer Society Cancer Facts & Figures 2022:

  • 287,850 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women and 2,710 in men
  • 51,400 new cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) will be diagnosed.  
  • 43,780 people (43,250 women and 530 men) will die from breast cancer

In an effort to support outreach activities and increase awareness of breast cancer within your program and your community, the Commission on Cancer (CoC)  and the National Accreditation for Breast Centers (NAPBC) have developed resources to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Staff at CoC and/or NAPBC-accredited programs can access the materials on the Quality Portal (Qport):
