1 in 8 U.S. women will develop breast cancer at some point in her lifetime.     

The University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center's Office of Community Engagement and Cancer Disparities created this breast health education tool, A Walk through the Cure, to lead you on a journey to learn first-hand about the continuum of breast health care from screening to treatment and survivorship.
