Official COVID-19 Response from the President of Arizona Oncology Foundation
This is a common disease where a malignant tumor has developed from cells in the breast growing out of control. It is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women in the United States, right after lung cancer. About 1 in 8 US women (over 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Although extremely rare, it can even develop in males (about 1 in 883).
There are different kinds of cancer within the breast. The type of cancer depends on which cells in the breast turn into cancer, from within the three main parts of the breast: lobules, ducts, and connective tissue. Most breast cancers begin in the ducts or lobules.
There can be many contributing factors that cause breast cancer in both women and men. Below is a list of common causes, including but not limited to...
Arizona Oncology Foundation is a program-based organization whose primary mission is to help people through cancer treatment and survivorship. We provide free services that increase the quality of life while people and their loved ones fight cancer. Specifically, we provide the non-medical supportive services that most insurance companies either don’t cover at all or not to the extent that is actually needed. We have 25 integrative and supportive services that help patients, their family members and caregivers.
If you wish to help us in our mission, please donate to this worthy cause. All accepted clothing (click HERE for an extensive list) and monetary donations are specifically used to help cancer victims, their families and caretakers by means of offering them non-medical, healthcare supportive services, financial aid services and cancer support groups, which help people through cancer treatment and survivorship as we strive to increase the quality of life of all those affected by cancer.
