Students advocate for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

First Lady for AMH high tea

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 accounts for 27 per cent of all cancers in women in India, with the incidences rising in the early thirties and peaking at ages of 50-64 years.

On the occasion of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Al Khalij Commercial Bank (al khaliji) organised a seminar for its employees in partnership with the National Breast and Bowel Cancer Screening Programme "Screen for Life".

She advised women to patronise the free screening and education campaigns being hosted by many health facilities across the country.

The American Cancer Society estimates that 268,670 people will develop breast cancer, and 41,400 people will die from breast cancer in 2018.

Breast Cancer Now believes that increasing participation to 80% across all screening units would result in more than 230,000 additional women being screened each year and contribute to over 1,200 fewer deaths per annual cohort of eligible women. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987 and passed away from the disease in 2009. Fortunately, breast cancer mortality rates have been declining since 1989 due to the improvements in detection and treatment.

"It's important to note that most lumps are not cancerous, but women should have them checked by a health care provider", she said. "These cancers are associated with somatic mutations in breast cells that are acquired during a person's lifetime, and they do not cluster in families".
