Cruxificion Cited as a Top Breast Cancer Fundraising Team

"Women need to have more conversations like this", says Heckathorn, a radiologic technician and Certified Patient Breast Navigator.

"Awareness should be created among masses to get most breast cancers detectable at early stages, as most women with breast cancer arrive after metastasis (when the tumor has spread to other body parts)".

The study found that while women diagnosed with HR-positive breast cancer have lower risk of progression to metastatic disease soon after the diagnosis, their risk persists for several years.

"Breast cancer has touched nearly every family in some way", he said, commenting on how his sister is a two-time survivor of breast cancer.

Each year in the United States, more than 240,000 women get breast cancer, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Sue Shoup, one of the event attendees and a breast cancer survivor, stressed the importance of people going for mammograms to test for the disease.

Now there are no reliable data on the risk of metastatic breast cancer recurrence after a non-metastatic breast cancer diagnosis, because registries do not routinely collect information on cancer progression or recurrence, Mariotto explained.

"Pink Month" inspired desserts are available at Kiyomi, Cucina Vivo, M&G Café and Food Quarter, with 100 percent of proceeds raised being donated to Cancer Council Queensland (CCQ) through the Pink Ribbon Foundation. This program has also identified breast cancer in 86 women and is made possible through State and Federal funding.

Jayaram said he wished more patients took the link between smoking and breast cancer seriously. Women should check for any changes, contour or dimpling of the skin or changes in the nipples. Men even tend to have higher mortality rates than women because they don't know they're at risk and get help too late.

In addition to the Store's pink paper pumpkins, from 11 a.m.to 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, students can paint a pumpkin pink in the Koon's Activity Venue (KAV) to celebrate breast cancer awareness month and to honor the memories of friends and family lost to cancer. While this will not identify breast cancer before it forms, as mammograms can, self-exams are instrumental in catching breast cancer in the earliest stages, especially for younger women who do not normally have regular mammograms. Make an appointment. It could save your life. CURE Talks Cancer Though not strictly about breast cancer, the CURE® Talks Cancer podcasts provide a wealth of cancer research and education. Additionally, a woman's risk of breast cancer almost doubles if she has a mother, sister or daughter diagnosed with breast cancer; however, less than 15 percent of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it, according to breastcancer.org.
