"A lot of people are affected by cancer and I think that people like the theme of this event", said Clare Haddon. According to the organization, more than 266,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with the disease and about 2,550 men in 2018.

"This projected rise in breast cancer deaths is deeply worrying, but it is not too late to stop it".
