ALIV Engages for Breast Cancer Awareness Month — BAHAMAS

Breast cancer remains the most common of all cancers in the UK

Breast cancer remains the most common of all cancers in the UK

Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October was part of a national campaign organized by charities to increase awareness of the disease and raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. Side effects from these treatments can range from hair loss, nerve damage and memory problems years after treatment. There are signs and symptoms of breast cancer.

But often, people do not know what to do help besides donning pink.

The researchers noted that the absence of a statistically significant link in premenopausal women may be due to a smaller sample size, and further studies should be conducted to clarify this. We hope that results from our research may help give you some ideas. It is a central part of our responsibility to get involved and do whatever we can to assist groups or individuals looking to raise funds and donate to The Cancer Society of The Bahamas.

"One of the things we say to people is breast cancer doesn't just happen in October", said Susan Samaroo, the executive director of the Maurer Foundation, a breast cancer awareness nonprofit that focuses much of its outreach on Oceanside High School students.

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

"I go around and tell the store managers, these stores are not your stores", Feller said.

"Genetic counselling can be very helpful for those who have a strong family history of breast cancer".

Women also shared how their family supported them in more emotional ways, such as providing encouragement and being present, and tangible ways, such as cooking meals and house cleaning.

On Saturday, however, he and the rest of the B's were silenced in their 1-0 loss to the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena. The Bruins will head back home to TD Garden on Monday, when they clash with ex-Bruin Tyler Seguin and the Dallas Stars.

"I thought I was going to die because in my mind, cancer was a deadly disease".

"He [my doctor] said, "you'll be fine".

"If I feel anything on my body, I rush to the doctor". ALIV made the donation to Hot91 personality RikaC.

Third, women described situations where the support from others was unhelpful. "We need to raise awareness for it".

The organisation also added that the majority of deaths (296 000) occur in low-and middle-income countries, where most women with breast cancer are diagnosed late due to lack of awareness and poor access to health services.

"Previous works linked increased risk of some types of cancer to higher processed meat intake, and this recent meta-analysis suggests that processed meat consumption may also increase breast cancer risk", Maryam Farvid, the study's lead author and a researcher at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, said in a press release.

Dr Salha Bujassoum, who is also director of the Hereditary Cancer and High-Risk Screening Programme, recalled that the team at NCCCR's High-Risk Breast Screening and Genetics Programme assessed over 800 patients past year. Because dense tissue is one of the main reasons for masked tumors, women were stratified into risk categories based on percent breast density. "Heather and the High-Risk Breast Cancer Program do that".

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.
