Statement of Support from Komen Oregon
Komen Oregon and SW Washington support the work of Kris Wallsmith’s breast cancer awareness campaign. Its powerful imagery reminds the public that, while we have made significant advances in the treatment of breast cancer, women are still dying every day. When found in its earliest stage, breast cancer has a 98 percent survival rate, and is easier to treat than breast cancer diagnosed at a later stage. That’s why it’s important for women to take action. Practice breast self-awareness. Know your risk. Know what’s normal for you. And most importantly, get screened.
