Dogs don pink jumpers for breast cancer

Dogs don pink jumpers for breast cancer”

The number of women who will die from breast cancer each year in the United Kingdom is expected to rise within four years if adequate government action is not taken.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the LAHS Girls Soccer Program will contribute to this campaign through their annual Kick for the Cure event. But Breast Cancer Now believes that this progress could be undone by as soon as 2022, as a result of increasing incidence of the disease brought about by an ageing population and rising obesity.

Thanks to the popularity of at-home DNA testing kits, it's now pretty widely known that some people's risk of breast cancer can be hereditary, and science is better than ever at detecting those genes that can raise your risk of breast cancer.

According to the SA National Cancer Registry, one in 29 women in South Africa will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

The screening at Mississauga Hospital runs all week. The American Cancer Society estimates that only five to 10 percent of all breast cancers are inherited or caused by genetics. Monitoring tests are done once breast cancer is diagnosed to determine the treatment and also after treatment to monitor the body. The warning signs of breast cancer are not the same for all women.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the United Kingdom and is diagnosed in roughly 55,000 women and 350 men every year. With advanced technologies like 3D Tomosynthesis, the breast can be reviewed in 1 mm slice which enables breast cancer detection at a much earlier stage. "Our aim is that, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live - but if we are to achieve this, we all need to act now".

She launched her campaign to mobilise financial resources to fight cervical cancer in February this year through her Angel of Hope Organisation and the programme has so far benefited thousands of women countrywide.
