Take steps to fight breast cancer diagnosis

'2000 detected with breast cancer daily'

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and several Roanoke Valley organizations are participating.

The company is also hosting the "AVON 39 The Walk To End Breast Cancer" event in NY on October 14 and 15 - a 39-mile walk aimed at raising funds and awareness. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women, but in many cases, it can be treated if caught early.

State Police are selling a limited supply of pink MSP patches for $10, with proceeds going to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Seventy percent of the net amount raised from its sales goes to the National Institutes of Health and 30 percent goes to the Medical Research Program at the Department of Defense. We should do all we can to make sure we raise awareness about breast cancer by promoting annual screenings, providing information about where women can go to get screenings and places they can go for help if they are diagnosed with cancer. The LaSalle County Health Department, through an Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program grant, can pay for mammograms and pap smears for women who qualify.

Chargers player heard venting 'Every game's an away game!
If the Eagles can control the tempo in this game, they should be in good shape of returning from the West Coast victorious. But for the second week in a row, Wentz quarterbacked the Eagles over another backs-against-the-wall winless opponent.

Breast cancer death rates dropped by close to 40 percent between 1989 and 2015, according to a new report from the American Cancer Society. Since black women are more likely to develop aggressive forms of breast cancer and have less access to preventative care, they're still far more likely to die from breast cancer than white women. However, breast cancer is an issue that has united multiple cosmetics giants, with beauty heavyweight Estee Lauder also known for its Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, which has been running since 1992. Staying at a healthy weight throughout life, adopting a physically active lifestyle and limiting alcohol consumption may help reduce breast cancer risk. "Early detection of cancer is as important as its treatment. They want to help and to get involved in causes that support the greater good", said Snyder. A man's lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.

"The three-dimensional images allow board certified radiologists to examine the breast tissue one layer at a time, so fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below", said Alison Boerner, director of radiology at St. Vincent Anderson. She is also a leader and advisor to a number of physicians and boards focused on treating, curing and preventing breast cancer.
