A Few Facts about Domestic Violence
Women of all cultures, races, occupations, income
levels, and ages are battered - by husbands, boyfriends, lovers and partners. (Surgeon General) Nearly
1 in 3 adult women experience at least one physical assault by a partner during adulthood. A woman
is beaten every 15 seconds. (Bureau of Justice Statistics, Report to the nation on Crime and Justice.)
Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between ages 15 and 44 in the united States
- more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. Battered women are more likely to suffer
miscarriages and to give birth to babies with low birth weights. (Surgeon General) Battered women
are often severely injured - 22 to 35 percent of women who visit medical emergency rooms are there for
injuries related to ongoing partner abuse. Nationally, 50 percent of all homeless women and children
are on the streets because of violence in the home.
You may think of these as number's but behind
each of these number there is a real women being hurt, families torn apart, future relationships destroyed.

Every woman is at risk for breast cancer Breast cancer is
the most common form of cancer in American women It is the single leading cause of cancer death for
women 20-59 years of age One out of eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer if
they live past the age of 85 In 1998, a new case of breast cancer was diagnosed every three minutes,
and a person died from breast cancer every twelve minutes. Over 80% of breast lumps are benign, but
any breast lump must be evaluated by a physician. Follow-up biopsy is often recommended. If detected
early, breast cancer can often be treated effectively with surgery that preserves the breast. Five-year
survival after treatment for localized breast cancer is 98%.
