Gordian Dynamics Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the Gordian Dynamics team wore pink to show our support to find a cure. Gordian Dynamics is proud to provide IT solutions that enable medical organizations to improve processes and provide better patient care. We see it first hand and hear incredible stories every day that remind us just how important good healthcare is.

Breast Cancer Statistics (courtesy of www.breastcancer.org):

  • About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
  • In 2015, an estimated 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 60,290 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
  • About 2,350 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2015. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
  • For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.
  • Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. In 2015, it’s estimated that just under 30% of newly diagnosed cancers in women will be breast cancers.
  • About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. These occur due to genetic mutations that happen as a result of the aging process and life in general, rather than inherited mutations.
