Beverley Ashdown, community colleague at Asda Watford, said: "This year, colleagues in Watford will be "in the pink" throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month to raise awareness of breast cancer, and the fundraising activities taking place instore and in the community".

Breast cancer accounts for 27 per cent of all cancers in women in India, with the incidences rising in the early thirties and peaking at ages of 50-64 years. At Queensway Health Centre, breast screening will be Wednesday, Oct. 24. If you've never had breast cancer in your family, that doesn't mean you should neglect your breast exams or mammograms. Although the probability of developing breast cancer rises with age, in India, incidences of breast cancer has increased in younger people - females below 40 years, including working women in urban areas.

Breast cancer refers to abnormal growth of breast cells and can develop in any part of the breast tissue. Speaking ahead of the event, General Manager of Brown Thomas, Galway, Marilyn Gallagher said: "Brown Thomas are delighted to support the National Breast Cancer Research Institute as it funds vital research that helps to ascertain the causes and factors that influence breast cancer and therefore help to develop effective screening, treatments and medication to combat it". "These cancers are associated with somatic mutations in breast cells that are acquired during a person's lifetime, and they do not cluster in families".


Colleges Against Cancer is associated with the American Cancer Society and their fundraising goes toward patient support, cancer research, prevention education, and information detection and treatment. Breast cancer, unfortunately, isn't a simple illness, and we all need to be aware to catch the signs of it as soon as possible.
