In 2018, it is estimated that 627,000 women died from breast cancer - that is approximately 15% of all cancer deaths among women.

"We are pleased to be able to support this worthy cause and help raise awareness of the impact this disease has on so many people every year", said company president Allan Raikes. "And of course asking me back this second year, you know I'm now a year and a half cancer-free and I'm doing much better, but you know the emotional scars are still there and just having this get together for women that are survivors, and that are still going through treatments is more than I could ever ask for". Harpst is also an advocate for woman getting mammograms before 40 years old. "They sponsor our kickoff breakfast where we host all of our team leaders; they give us a $25,000 check and then raise another $20,000 within their system". The National Breast Cancer Foundation recommends that you do this in the shower or while lying down.

Snyder began the day by passing out Think Pink ribbons with ZTA members.

In women with a significant family history of breast cancer or special circumstances, mammography can also be followed by ultrasound in both screening and symptomatic examinations and breast MRI.

More than one-third of women between the ages of 50 and 74 in Waterloo region and Wellington county are not being regularly screened for breast cancer, the Waterloo Wellington Regional Cancer Program says.

Unfortunately, nearly 11,500 women and 80 men will lose the fight against this devastating and distressing disease each year in the United Kingdom, which is roughly estimated to 1,000 deaths each month. "We really appreciate it".

The American Cancer Society (ACS) held their annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk to celebrate breast cancer survivors and remember those who have been lost to the disease.

"I get to go on the field today, I'm excited about that, O'Shea said".

"I am thrilled to see so many plates all over Maine, but especially happy to see the financial benefits that have been generated and used by the beneficiary organizations, all of which are based here in Maine". Men carry a higher mortality than women do, primarily because awareness among men is less and they are less likely to assume a lump is breast cancer which can cause a delay in seeking treatment. Her doctor said it was normal for scar tissue to harden over time. "Just the whole experience is just a great experience".

There is plenty of awareness of the dangers of breast cancer but a local organization says there are not enough community resources to help women manage life with the disease.

"Awareness of the symptoms is very vital; people need to seek screening services as early as possible as a way of reducing risks", he says.
