Breast Cancer Fact Check: Family history and breast cancer

"And my dad was with me today, so that was really neat to have".

Apparently, the holiday dates back to an ancient celebration of the dead returning to Earth.

The results were announced at the ESMO congress, where on Saturday Roche also announced positive results from a study of Tecentriq plus chemotherapy for the first-line treatment of unresectable locally advanced or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). Let's start educating. Because education really is what is behind saving lives.

If you or anyone you know have been diagnosed with this disease and would like to support the cause for awareness, there are several ways to do so.

There's nothing wrong with contributing to a cause that raises money for sick people. "We have started our awareness campaign against breast cancer past year in line with our efforts to give back to our community". The Breast Cancer Awareness day-long event included health-related activities and informative medical kiosks providing attendees with valuable information regarding the disease and means of prevention.

BCN provides free breast cancer screenings for qualifying women between the ages of 30 and 64 and free cervical cancer screenings for women between the ages of 21 and 64.

"My contribution might be a drop in the ocean; I am happy to be that drop and bring a smile to someone", school teacher Rama Venkatesh said. So a fight for a far-off cure seemed out of the question to me.

"Over the weekends, we went to the Junction mall and Accra mall to spread the information and examine them there". There is an increase in the trend of new cancer patients, and the age group of new patients coming annually have gradually dropped from 55 years to under 40 years of age. There are family members here there are friends there are neighbors. It was little things like offering to drive my sister to basketball practice or lend my mom a warm hat that made the biggest difference. It aims to raise awareness through encouraging people to dress in pink and to donate to research.

Not being physically active: Women who are not physically active have a higher risk of getting breast cancer. That's where awareness begins.
