Breast Cancer Awareness Walk in West Point

It is estimated that one in 28 women is likely to develop breast cancer during her lifetime.

FIRST Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa will be the guest of honour at the Alpha Media Holdings' (AMH) fundraising High Tea in honour of those affected by breast cancer set for October 26 as part of the Breast Cancer Awareness month at Vanilla Moon in Mount Pleasant, Harare.

Breast cancer is the most common type of invasive cancer in women, and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in women, after lung cancer. To help women take control of their health and continue the positive trend in survival rates, DHEC offers free breast cancer and cervical cancer screenings to qualified women through its Best Chance Network (BCN) program.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the United Kingdom and is diagnosed in roughly 55,000 women and 350 men every year.

A dozen dogs donned pink jumpers and sauntered alongside volunteers during a charity walk to raise money for breast cancer. "We now have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest to stop thousands more women dying from breast cancer, and we urge the government to act now", said Breast Cancer Now's chief executive, Baroness Delyth Morgan. Diagnostic tests (such as biopsy) are given to people who are suspected of having breast cancer, either because of symptoms they may be experiencing or a screening test result. Candles will be lit in memory of those of our church family who have lost the battle to breast cancer: Shirley Bodine, Beverly Brady, Wanda Pennington, Myrtle Lucas, and Gladys Barnes.

"It's so encouraging that, thanks to decades of research progress and NHS investment, more women are surviving breast cancer than ever before".

"It's important to note that most lumps are not cancerous, but women should have them checked by a health care provider", she said.
