Streator Post Office hosts Breast Cancer Awareness Day

RE/MAX agent celebrates fun and fashion for a good cause

The latest workshop took place this week as part of the Trust's Breast Cancer Awareness month activities.

Not long after that, Thompson had her sister shave her head.

To mark this year's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF), in collaboration with the Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) and Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), organised the fourth consecutive annual "Pink Walk" breast cancer awareness event at Aspire Park, sponsored by Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co. In most cases, changes in the breast are not signs of cancer but to be sure, you should have them checked by your doctor or nurse practitioner. Generally, a biopsy of a detected mass in the breast is taken and sent to a pathologist who determines if the tumor is aggressive or localized and if the cancer has metasticized.

Ellyn didn't know anyone in her family who had breast cancer until she underwent genetic testing. "The issue is there can be a big delay" in starting treatment of a patient with a very aggressive type of breast cancer, she adds. Diagnosis at early stage gives better chances of complete cure.

"I tried to prevent my thoughts from straying down the black hole of craziness", he said.

"I sort of had an inkling that would be the news, but it still doesn't prepare you", she said. I didn't think cancer could happen to me, but it did. Breast Cancer survivor Brandy Williamson said, "Nobody can get rid of cancer if we don't do some research".

"It just feels like we're all coming together for a common cause you know", said Lopeztome, "in fighting so that no one has to hear those words again". Though there are numerous facets with which both men and women can be diagnosed, Jackson said they usually fall into two categories; ductal and lobular. Deaths from breast cancer in the Ontario population went down by about 47 percent in women ages 50 to 74 from 1990 to 2013.

This is especially so with inflammatory breast cancer, an exceptionally rare and aggressive disease in which cancer cells block lymph vessels in the skin of the breast.

Almost 60 per cent patients with breast cancers are diagnosed in advanced stages.

"Metastatic breast cancer is the little secret of breast cancer that still gets insufficient attention during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and beyond", Weatherby said. So instead, it is vital that people donate directly to organizations like METAvivor, where 100 percent of donations go directly to metastatic breast cancer research, according to its website. She instantly felt a false sense of relief, but she actually did have cancer.
