For women, the chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime is 1-in-8.

Brown Thomas, Galway will go 'PINK' on Wednesday, October 24th when they will host an exclusive in-store event in support of Galway based charity, the National Breast Cancer Research Institute, as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

"Last year, our food and beverage team took the initiative to find a creative way to participate in Breast Cancer Awareness month by producing pink food products for sale", said Kenneth Kahn, tribal chairman for the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. At Queensway Health Centre, breast screening will be Wednesday, Oct. 24.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the United Kingdom and is diagnosed in roughly 55,000 women and 350 men every year. All funds raised will be donated to the charity METAvivor, which uses 100 percent of donations towards research to battle metastatic breast cancer. If you've never had breast cancer in your family, that doesn't mean you should neglect your breast exams or mammograms.

"Regular breast cancer screening can catch a cancer early, when it is most treatable", said Dr. Virginie Daguise, MSPH, Director of DHEC's Bureau of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention.

"Women in my family, and my husband's family have died from breast cancer affecting us directly", Terell said.

One of the most common symptoms is an irregularity on a mammogram, which indicates the need for more screening and hopefully any abnormalities being detected at an early stage.

Being overweight or obese after menopause: Older women who are overweight or obese have a higher risk of getting breast cancer than those at a normal weight. In the future, Pejsa said she hopes they can have a whole week dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness.
