Sandlot Swag is very proud to unveil our newest baseball shorts, our Breast Cancer Awareness Shorts (pictured below). Odds are you know someone who has been affected by breast cancer, whether it is a mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, cousin, or friend. The disease affects about 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%). These stylish shorts are the perfect way to show your support in the fight against breast cancer.
A portion of the proceeds raised from Sandlot Swag’s breast cancer awareness shorts will be donated to Susan G. Komen, which has played a critical role in the fight against breast cancer since 1982.
Breast Cancer Statistics
- Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the U.S., behind only non-melanoma skin cancer.
- Just under 30% of cancers in women are breast cancers.
- In 2013, it is estimated that there will be 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer, 64,640 new cases of in situ breast cancer, and 39,620 breast cancer deaths.
- Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death among women, behind only lung cancer.
- A woman’s risk of breast cancer approximately doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
- Around 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history.
Currently, there are about 3 million breast cancers survivors, the largest group of cancer survivors in the U.S. This number is so large in no small part to the efforts of Susan G. Komen and caring individuals like you.
