Did you know Breast Cancer treatment costs is between $20,000-$100,000? On average, $10,000 of that expense is not covered by insurance. With that in mind, now consider that the majority of Americans have $5,000 or less in savings and 35% have $1000 or less. The disparity between the cost of medical treatment and the average American's savings makes a breast cancer diagnosis financially, emotionally, and physically devastating.
