Charity organization to raise breast cancer awareness

Runners in the 12th annual Girlfriends Run for a Cure race through Vancouver starting and finishing

More than one-third of women between the ages of 50 and 74 in Waterloo region and Wellington county are not being regularly screened for breast cancer, the Waterloo Wellington Regional Cancer Program says.

Colleges Against Cancer at the University is hosting events and fundraisers for students to participate in throughout the month.

The ACO Cancer Information Group (CIG) ACO Cancer Information Group provides free interactive cancer prevention information and training programmes for businesses and the general public.

"It is also used to communicate what actions people can take to prevent breast cancer and how they can catch its development early", Feiger said.

There is plenty of awareness of the dangers of breast cancer but a local organization says there are not enough community resources to help women manage life with the disease. "More years, more hugs, more love, more life - that's worth fighting for!"

The Rimrock Mall hosted a fashion show at "Pack the Mall in Pink".

Matthiesen also said that with some cancers, professionals recommend that patients are given an age at which they can stop screening.

Over the past five years, the organization has helped almost 300 women. most in their 20's, 30's and early 40's. "To celebrate this 10th anniversary of the "pink" specialty license plate, Maine CDC encourages women to speak with their healthcare providers about routine screenings for breast cancer", Lever said.

The general recommendation is that women start having annual mammograms at age 40, said Sonu Suri, a radiologist in the Breast Center at Mercy Hospital Joplin. Screening mammography should occur at least biennially and as frequently as every year. As such, they may have to push their doctor to get a mammogram, ultrasound or biopsy. A year later, another mammogram came back benign.

"We're going to die soon if you don't give us the medicines we need".

Harpst also said she thinks it's important for people to be their own advocates, do their own research and decide what they want to do for themselves.

Most patients diagnosed with breast cancer will be able to choose between a lumpectomy (where only the cancer is removed with a rim of normal breast tissue around it) and a mastectomy (where all of the breast tissue is removed surgically).

The risk of developing breast cancer increases as one gets older, however one out of eight invasive breast cancers are found in women younger than 45.

"The doctor sat me down and just kept apologizing", Harris said, referring to her radiologist's reaction.

Jina Han, sophomore in LAS, bought a Pink Week shirt a year ago.

"I get to be a voice and be here for the people that can't", Johnson said.

Harpst hopes students will be proactive by participating in events during the month and even throughout the year.

She goes on to explain that when one is self examining, they have to stand straight in front of the mirror such that they visualize the breast by checking the size, color and shape to see if there are any changes.
