Statistics indicate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. If detected early, the five year survival rate is 97 percent. The American Cancer Society, American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American College of Radiology, and Susan G. Komen for the Cure® continue to agree that breast cancer screening should begin at age 40 – even earlier if a woman is at greater risk for developing breast cancer.

Through promisetome.com, we are asking women to make the promise to take care of their health and to pass this message on. For every promise made and passed, Hologic will donate $1 towards preventive healthcare for underserved women.*
