Student events to increase breast cancer awareness

Health experts advise early screening in order to pick up cancers at very early stages./Net

The Cancer Care Specialist with the Ministry of Health and Wellness, Dr. Owen Gabriel, encourages women particularly during breast cancer awareness month, to get screened for breast cancer. Pay attention if you have a first-degree relative (sibling, parent, or child) with breast cancer, especially if it is pre-menopausal breast cancer; more than one first-degree relative with breast cancer; a relative who had breast cancer in both breasts; or several second-degree relatives with breast cancer, says Dr. Brem.

Sampson County's 20th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Rally will be Saturday, Oct. 20, from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.at Olivet Institutional Baptist Church, 537 McKoy St., Clinton. "We are also here to remember those that we have lost through the breast cancer and those who are still fighting, and just trying to inspire those that are still going through the battle and seeing all the other survivors, knowing that they can make it through as well". With the number of cancer patients on the rise, we need to tackle this disparity by collaborating with the NHS and embracing the power of new technologies. About 30 percent of breast cancer in young women is found a few years after having a child. It's a typical one African-American women in Chicago face, particularly for those who are low-income or uninsured, Murphy said. "In January 2016 I found a swelling in my breast and I was told it was breast cancer". "So today's failings must not be swept under the carpet".

Petition organiser Terre Nicholson said women around the country were dying early, "losing precious time they could spend with their families and to prepare their little ones for being without their mother".

If you are overweight or obese it can increase the risk of breast cancer.

"You don't realize when your diagnosed that it is for life, however long that life is", she said.

While five Taliban members were also killed in the attack, more than 10 Afghan soldiers have been taken as hostages by the group. Scores of people had gathered to listen to the candidate, but police said she was not at the rally at the time of the blast.

Eluned Hughes, Head of Public Health and Information at Breast Cancer Now, says regular checks are a must. A nurse with the Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force, will help Tatum navigate the system with her disease from start to finish. "I'm thankful for everyone I've met on this journey".

Breast Cancer Foundation NZ's chief executive Evangelia Henderson described the lack of funding for drugs that extend the lives of advanced breast cancer patients as "heartless and cruel".

Research has shown that being overweight or obese increases the risk of breast and other cancers. Men carry a higher mortality than women do, primarily because awareness among men is less and they are less likely to assume a lump is breast cancer which can cause a delay in seeking treatment.

Estee Lauder Companies Inc are also in the fight against breast cancer with the Breast Cancer Campaign - founded by the late Evelyn H Lauder, who co-created the iconic Pink Ribbon - which is now in its 26th year.
