Zeta Tau Alpha sisters Piper Garick and Sydney Steele serve Cold Stone ice cream to students at the "Cones for a Cure" event on October 24 in the Eleanor Seattle Drawing Room. This will give 85,000 women across Europe between the ages of 40 and 70 either the existing mammogram test or the new personalised test and follow their progress for four years. Customers were invited to drink glasses of wine, eat grilled treats and other snacks, and attend vendor demonstrations for home-improvement projects.

The acting Eastern Regional Director of the Department of Gender, Miss Juliana Abbeyquaye, has cautioned breast cancer patients to stop seeking health care from prayer camps when they show early signs of the disease.

"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. According to the foundation's website, it has reached 348,185 high school and college students, parents and neighbors.

The special initiative was the flawless ending to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

"Speak up for yourself and ALWAYS be your own advocate", Barwick said.

The High-Risk Breast Screening and Genetics Programme provides genetic counselling and testing services to patients who are concerned about their hereditary cancer risk because of a personal and/or family history.


Last month, the World Health Organization said it was estimated that 627 000 women had already died from breast cancer in 2018 - amounting to about 15% of all cancer deaths among women.

Out of the 5,099 breast cancer patients analyzed, 597 carried PTVs. I was lucky that they found it in stage three and that it had not spread to other parts of my body.

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 a year ago.

Breast cancer is a risky and scary occurrence that shouldn't be limited to a single month of the year. Roughly 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with the illness in their lifetime.

The Open Door educational program, Pink Speaker Series sponsored by the local nonprofit "Thriving Pink", will be held Monday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. Colleen Sweeney, PhD Davis, will speak on "What are the Latest Treatments and Research for Breast Cancer?" -Shelly Ann, age 64, 6 years post-diagnosis.

Robert Feller, the vice president of sales and marketing for Ace, said he hoped the event would bring the community together. He added that he wanted to make it an annual event and for all Ace stores to host many more community outings in the future. When I went to the hospital to have my port [for chemotherapy] put in and everything, they were real nice there.
