In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Exquisite Property Services announces our 1st Annual Cancer Awareness Campaign. We kick off the month by announcing our support for My Style Matters, an incredible not-for-profit organization that helps women survive and thrive in their fight against breast cancer. They have been a blessing to my big sis, Rah, and I want to be a blessing back! Please help us spread the word about breast health and about this great organization serving the community.

So, this year, Exquisite Property Services will join the fight against breast cancer and walk in the October 15th annual breast cancer walk, Making Strides of Newark. We invite our friends, family, and clients to walk with us. We are supporting and welcoming others to support the nonprofit organization that has been instrumental in the breast cancer fight for so many women like my sister.

How common is breast cancer?

  • Breast cancer accounts for 12.5% of all new annual cancer cases worldwide, making it the most common cancer in the world.
  • About 13% (about 1 in 8) of U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer during their life.
  • In 2023, an estimated 297,790 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in U.S. women, along with 55,720 new cases of DCIS.
  • In 2023, an estimated 2,800 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 833.
  • There are currently more than 4 million women with a history of breast cancer in the United States. This includes women now being treated and women who have finished treatment.
  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among U.S. women. About 30% of all newly diagnosed cancers in women each year are breast cancer. (org) 

Differences in breast cancer statistics by race and ethnicity

There are persistent disparities in breast cancer incidence and death rates:

  • Black women are more likely to die from breast cancer than women of any other racial or ethnic group. Experts believe it’s partially because about 1 in 5 Black women is diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer, more than any other racial or ethnic group.
  • Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States for Black and Hispanic women.
  • Breast cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States, following lung cancer, for Asian and Pacific Islander women, American Indian and Alaska Native women, and white women.
  • Ashkenazi Jewish women have a higher risk of breast cancer because of a higher rate of BRCA mutations. Information is provided by org.

How do I register for the walk, donate, and learn more?

Exquisite Property Services will take collections throughout October for the organization and commit the 1st $500 donation toward the campaign. The campaign will be posted to the company’s Instagram page.

I sincerely thank you for your support,

Warmest Regards,

Karima Jackson
