Surgeon, dietician to lead breast cancer health tour at Kroger in Dearborn

Surgeon, dietician to lead breast cancer health tour at Kroger in Dearborn”

This announcement comes as Breast Cancer Awareness month gets underway in October. And, as more than 40,600 women are expected to die of the disease in the US this year, it also remains the second leading cause of death after lung cancer, the Post notes.

Lakehurst Police will donate money raised from pink patch sales to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease, and also marks the beginning of the department's annual breast cancer T-shirt sales. The stamps may also be purchased by phone, 800-STAMP-24 (800-782-6724), or online here.

During the second event, 11 a.m. on October 19, Cancer Support Program Coordinator Rebecca Senoglu and a panel of breast cancer survivors will share their personal experiences and talk about the resources that are available from the moment of diagnosis.

Strom explained that a group of ladies at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club started Pink Ribbon after their friends were diagnosed with breast cancer.

Briana Schwarz, a Regional director of Sharsheret (a national non-profit organization) in Florida, said that, "Since Sharsheret's founding in 2001, we have been proud to partner with JCCs, synagogues, Jewish Family Services and other agencies to raise awareness about breast cancer in the Jewish community".

TheBeautyPlace.com hopes that by raising awareness for a disease that affects women all of the world, it can contribute to recognizing the importance of early detection.

The disparity is the worst here in Louisiana, where black woman are 66 percent more likely to die from breast cancer than their white counterparts.

"I always say Lexi's mom was my angel, because had it not been for her, I would have never done a self-breast exam". "In Ontario, we recommend that women at average risk for breast cancer go for a screening mammogram starting at age 50, and then continue to go every two years until 74 years of age. On behalf of the Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society, I would again like to applaud and thank Payless for their continued support", said Vice Chairman Dr. Jacqueline Pereira Sabga.

Families come in many forms. Despite these positive gains, breast cancer is still the most common cancer diagnosed in American women and the second leading cause of cancer death, according to the report.

A woman living in the USA has a 1.24 percent, or a 1 in 8 lifetime risk, of being diagnosed with breast cancer.
