Belair Academy event spotlights breast cancer awareness

Raya Abirached launches “beet it” challenge to combat breast cancer

"For me in particular, I lost a really special aunt a year ago to breast cancer and it's become more important to me, she was just a really great lady", Kachman said. We hope that results from our research may help give you some ideas.

"It is important to understand that most women who develop breast cancer have no known risk factors but there are strategies they can employ to reduce their risk", said Dr. Kathie-Ann Joseph of NYU Langone Health. Some also expressed how helpful it was that their clergy prayed for them and reminded them "God was going to see me through".

They analyzed the results of 15 studies evaluating the association between processed meat and breast cancer incidence, which included data from 37,070 breast cancer cases in more than 1.2 million women.

"I received a lot of information, printout information and stuff, and if I had any questions, I was given a number that I called".

She has about 65 people whom she now counsels.

"If I feel anything on my body, I rush to the doctor".

Third, women described situations where the support from others was unhelpful. In the United States, the average age of diagnosis is 62 years. "We need to raise awareness for it".

Colleagues at Antalis' HQ, Coalville came together to wear pink and take part in traditional fun fair games; a Coconut Shy and Hook a Duck to name just a few during their fun fair theme charity day which raised over £500 for Breast Cancer Now.

Dorn encouraged students to reach out to make a difference by spreading the word to family members and friends about getting regular exams as well as making healthy lifestyle choices.

Letima said, "Being aware of the disease increases chances of early detection and prevention". Key moments when their needs may shift include when they shift from one type of treatment to the next, such as from surgery to chemotherapy, or when they have completed all of their prescribed breast cancer treatments.

A recent study found that the personalised breast cancer test "substantially improved the accuracy of risk prediction" in women.

So the initiative by Zimpapers, of raising awareness through the Cancer Walk remains of paramount importance in fighting all forms of cancers and Dr Makarawo believes such initiatives by corporates are important in bridging the knowledge gap. The proceeds will go to the Aurora Foundation for Cancer Research, which is part of the Advocate Medical Group.
