Breast Cancer Survivor Shares Recovery Journal, Offers Advice for Those in Treatment

- A local woman has found a silver lining to her tough breast cancer battle. The American Cancer Society states that breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, accounting for more than 1 in 8 cancer cases diagnosed in the U.S. citizens.

Clinical Nurse Specialist Addie Mitchell at Breast Cancer Care told The Sun that a majority of women don't regularly check their breasts, so having Alexa to guide them "will help empower many with the confidence to build this potentially lifesaving habit into their routine".

She said that the institute at PIMS has a dedicated all-female staff for diagnosis and treatment as women hesitate to undergo an examination under the supervision of male staff. Also known simply as the Breast Cancer Care App, BECCA is available on smart phones, tablets, and computers. Meanwhile, Superwonderful Films is responsible for the "Be Cancer Alert: Breast Cancer Awareness" TV commercial.

"Globally, breast cancer awareness campaigns have been very successful but post-mastectomy recovery has yet to gain awareness". This can be due to the high incidence of breast cancer, growing awareness about early detection of breast cancer and rise in funds for breast cancer treatment by the government and also in the field of research and development. Additionally, data indicate that the incidence of breast cancer in India is rising.

"It reappeared and metastasized, and at that point, once it comes back and metastasizes, it's Stage 4", she said.

"I am so thrilled to have joined Jessica Ramos, Jessica Lappin, and women activists in support of Senator Heidi Heitkamp and breast cancer research".

When I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in June, I wasn't necessarily afraid in that gut-punching moment.




In the early 2000s Simpson and about six other survivors founded the breast cancer ministry at Shorter. "Breast aesthetic surgeries in post-mastectomy women can play a critical role in aiding recovery, well-being and improving self-confidence", he said.

"Checking for symptoms of breast cancer can cause a lot of anxiety as they don't know what to look for, but the Alexa tool can help by listing the eight common ones".

According to World Health Organisation (WHO), in 2018, it is estimated that 627,000 women died from breast cancer that is approximately 15% of all cancer deaths among women.

The average breast cancer patient will probably go through many appointments, needles, devices, medicines, conversations, as well as times of uncertainty.

More than RM60,000 was raised through sales of a total of 25 golf flights as well as donations in aid of Breast Cancer Welfare Association (BCWA), National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) and Persatuan Kanser Network (KanWork). "I'm just so grateful to have survived twice".

"I believe we really filled a void during those early years, and so people were able to come to us or people who were diagnosed or their family members would call us", said Simpson.
