CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
The 2012 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure brought an incredible number of people out in the cold, dark, early-morning hours Saturday.
17,000 people showed up at Marshall Park to help find a cure for breast cancer. WBTV was there too, with two teams - Boob Tube Team John and Boob Tube Team Molly.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer rates vary depending on many factors. According to the Komen website, it is estimated there will be 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer among U.S. women this year.
Also this year, it is estimated there will be 63,300 new cases of situ breast cancer among U.S. women. This number includes DCIS (a non-invasive breast cancer) and LCIS (a condition that increases the risk of invasive breast cancer).
An estimated 39,510 U.S. women will lose the battle with breast cancer...that's just this year.
Breast cancer in men is not as common, but it does happen. An estimated 410 men will die of breast cancer in 2012, and 2,190 new cases are anticipated.
