Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin Program
Every year, thousands of women and men are diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks to earlier detection, increased awareness, and improved treatment, death rates from this disease have been decreasing since about 1989. Clinical advances resulting from research have led to increased survival rates, with death rates dropping over 34 percent since 1990.
The Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin recognizes the many Americans who are impacted by the disease and the effort to prevent it through research.
