There is life after cancer, stresses new awareness campaign

Medical City Lewisville

Just two years ago, Dalton was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer.

More than 20 years after the opening of the Mammovan - a 40-foot-long, 15-ton van that provides women with free breast cancer screenings year-round - doctors have screened more than 37,000 women for breast cancer.

Clinical Nurse Specialist Addie Mitchell at Breast Cancer Care told The Sun that a majority of women don't regularly check their breasts, so having Alexa to guide them "will help empower many with the confidence to build this potentially lifesaving habit into their routine".

Padmashri award victor Dr Suresh Advani said, "I would like to conclude this evening by thanking each and every one of you present here to encourage the women and to make them feel that nothing is impossible".

If the world seems a little pinker lately, that is because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and everyone from national brands to your local coffee shop are using different products and promotions to inform the public about the disease that claims the life of one woman every 13 minutes. Statistics provided by the American Cancer Society and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin Act created a commemorative coin program at the US Mint, which has the potential to raise an estimated $8.5 million in private funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The psycho-social aspect of recovery has often been related to the physical appearance post cancer treatment.

"Why are women, black women dying more than white women?" said Drayton.

Currently, with a pre-malignant breast cancer diagnosis from a biopsy, there are three options: observation, chemoprevention or surgery, all of which require a patient to make decisions while operating from a place of fear and unknown outcomes. And it's the only cancer that kills. Importantly, women who took goserelin experienced similar, or even better, survival rates compared with women who received standard chemo.

"Everyone should be responsive to any change in his or her body, because the only way it can be cured is through early detection", she said. Special thanks to everyone who supported Community HealthNet's 20th Annual Breast Cancer Walk. Hence it is of utmost importance to understand your breast's health, and undergo routine checkups for a higher chance of successful treatment. Importantly, it also helps break multiple existing myths around breast cancer in India. For this reason it is important to regularly examine your breast by looking into the mirror and by feeling for new changes.

Commenting on the Breasthetica campaign, CEO of Avivo Group Dr Dilshaad Ali said that breast cancer is a tough battle to fight; physically, emotionally and psychologically.
