October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

ZTA plans its 18th Annual Pink Ribbon Cheer Classic on October 21 beginning at 7:45 a.m.at YSU's Beeghly Center.

But then she learned her cancer metastasized to her lungs in 2013. She hasn't gone to an event since. "It's a hard medication to take", says Stephanie Wheeler, an associate professor of health policy and management at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and the lead author of the paper. "I can "fight like a girl" all I want, ... but I'll never stop treatment".

October can be a month of empowerment, reflection and fundraising for those whom breast cancer has affected.

Women with dense breasts are at higher risk of cancer.

Hungry Howie's began dedicating all its charitable efforts to breast cancer awareness in 2010.

Some women who have no family history of breast cancer might feel like they can skip their mammograms.

For Our Daughters Inc. was founded in 2012 after the founder, Mercedes Wilson, was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at the age of 28. The disease killed approximately 40,290 women in 2015.

In the United States, breast cancer effects 1-8 women. This is largely attributed to early detection and medical treatments that allow people to live longer with the disease.




Speaking on the findings, Vishal Gupta, Co-founder & CEO of Momspresso said, "Our objective to conduct the first-of-its kind survey was empowering women with knowledge and fostering a conversation on breast cancer awareness and symptoms". The Postal Service is promoting each of these stamps through the remainder of the year-starting with the Breast Cancer Research stamp in October.

"While simple carbohydrates are not good for anyone, sugar does not cause breast cancer or any other cancer in particular", Peddi said.

Kara McBurney works with the organization.

Most of the money goes to awareness and early detection, she said. However, radiation from mammograms use less radiation than chest X-rays and expose you to only about a tenth of the amount of radiation you are exposed to in nature. "I think we can do a better job supporting women". During an average follow up of 11.4 years, 3,061 new cases of invasive breast cancer were reported.

South Philly's Devil's Den is hosting an event where only pink drinks will be flowing in honor of BCA month. Some breast cancers, however, occur in both the ductal and lobular regions.

And half found one in two women would be more likely to vote for a Government which made breast density a national priority.

"Screenings and self-checks are extremely important; it may have saved my life", Gorbett said. "To me, it felt very different".

"I'll be with them", Smith said. "But I know that is not going to happen". "It therefore becomes imperative to increase and encourage open conversations on and about breast cancer".
