Here’s how Pink Mercy helped cancer research

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and for the third consecutive year, the entire Eco Serve team is out in the community serving its customers in pink polo shirts, pink gloves and pink boot covers.

Many people believe that breast cancer can only affect women - while it is true one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime - one in 1,000 men can also be diagnosed.

Back for the 17th year, wear it pink day takes place during October's breast cancer awareness month. However, in women over 50 the death rates have decreased.

"We don't routinely screen patients at 30 unless there was a strong family history of breast cancer where their first degree relative was diagnosed at an early age, so it's recommended 10 years prior to their cancer diagnosis to come in for their screenings", she said.

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, one in eight women in the US will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

While regular screenings do help detect cancer sooner, it doesn't help prevent it, but early detection is key according to Love. A mammogram is the best way to catch breast cancer early, sometimes up to three years before a lump can be felt, decreasing the likelihood it has spread and thereby improving survival rates. "Knowing the risks of progressing to metastatic breast cancer is important for patients making decisions about their treatment as well as for cancer control experts identifying research priorities and health services planning". While it's true that breasts can change in size during your menstrual cycle, that's an explained change. She encouraged listeners to go see a doctor if anything appears out of the ordinary. In 2017, they provided more than 4,900 mammograms to local women.

Weirton resident DeeAnn Greene and her mother, Nita Fluman of Canonsburg, Pa., brought candor, laughter and inspiration to the podium in their messages as part of the celebration and remembrance of those whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.

In addition, there are also psycho-social factors influencing her decision such as her self-efficacy and the extent to which she considers her own well-being and external looks a priority. For full instructions, women should visit the National Breast Cancer Foundation Inc. website. "Even professional doctors, you know, said I didn't have cancer".

"People who are overweight or obese have increased risk", McTiernan said.

Becca Williams will be ditching her normal clothes in order to don pink to raise money for Breast Cancer Now's life-saving breast cancer research and to inspire others to do the same this Friday.

Appearing on Thursday's Smart Talk to discuss this collaboration are Dr. Loren Robinson, Deputy Secretary for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Leigh Hurst, Executive Director, Feel Your Boobies Foundation, and Tyrisha Roberson, a breast cancer survivor.
