NEW YORK, Oct 4 ― H&M is launching its first-ever bra collection for breast cancer survivors, inspired by one of its employees.
This year's charity is the Breast Cancer Emergency Aid Foundation (BCEAF). Proceeds of the Orange Out biscuit will be donated to SOS Lowcountry to raise money for Breast Cancer patients.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, an annual global health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities. "It's kind of exciting to come up and be on the track and then talk about breast cancer", survivor Frank Dalton Sr. said.
The West Hempstead Walkers team will join the thousands of people who will take part in the 25th annual American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Jones Beach State Park on October 21.
The difficulty with having dense breasts is that it decreases the sensitivity of digital mammograms to detect cancer.
The mission for Sharsheret, Hebrew for chain, is to create a safe community for women facing breast and ovarian cancer and their families at every stage of life and at every stage of cancer. "I didn't know if I would see my kids grow up".
Breast cancer symptoms can vary from person to person.
A fearless survivor of breast cancer who was diagnosed when she was pregnant, told the audience she recovered fully by following the doctors' advice and with great moral and physical support of family and her doctors.
Like any other of her contemporaries, skepticism from fellow researchers and other challenges also greeted American geneticist Mary-Claire King when she set out to establish a genetic link to breast cancer more than four decades ago. Every year, around 40,000 women die of this disease and every 9th woman is at high risk.
There are many places to get screened in the Treasure Valley. This is the theme of breast cancer awareness drive launched on Tuesday by Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre which receives breast cancer patients more than any other type of cancer.
The project is led by Dr. Linda Vahdat, who serves as chief of medical oncology and clinical director of cancer services at Norwalk Hospital and breast medical oncologist at MSK. Visit the "Find a Doctor" tab at www.watertownregional.com and they can get you connected to the right care.
