Lotus Survival Foundation has created a fund to help the family members that have lost a loved one to breast cancer to cover some of the funeral costs and keep loved ones together.

Funerals are one of the most emotional events that an individual or family will ever have to deal with, but they are also extremely expensive. Although it might be too much for a close family member to undertake, this fundraising campaign can help the families that have lost a loved one to breast cancer to cover some of the funeral costs and keep loved ones together.

* One woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes, and one woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes in the U.S.  One every three minutes is derived from the following equation:
 365 days/yr X 24 hr/day X 60 min/hr = 525,600 minutes in each year
  525,600 / 207,090 women diagnosed/yr = 2.538 = 3
  

* One every thirteen minutes is derived from the following equation:
  365 days/yr X 24 hr/day X 60 min/hr = 525,600 minutes in each year
  525,600 / 39,840 women die/yr = 13.19 = 13
