Every year, one out of every eight women in the United States is told she has breast cancer.

According to statistics provided from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure website, 39,510 women in the U.S. will die from the disease this year.

Add to that another 15,500 women who are expected to die from ovarian cancer and the statistics begin to climb to a very scary place.

Women all over continue to fight those odds with fundraisers that contribute to cancer research.
