Driven to beat breast cancer
Ronnie Cohen-Boyar, director of the Massachusetts Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure , and a two-time breast cancer survivor, speaks out about all things breast related, from the personal to the political. Q: What is the current statistic on women and breast cancer? A: Right now we talk about one in eight women getting breast cancer in their lifetime. But I have a statistic that I like much better, which is that 98 percent of all women diagnosed with cancer that is still confined to their breast are alive five years later.
