Fight breast cancer and get a coffee

About 160 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the Bay of Plenty.

Taking preventative medicines to lower your risk: According to MD Anderson, your physician can calculate your risk of having a breast cancer in the next five years by using a tool called Gail Model which assesses your medical condition through a series of questions about risk factors.

The American Cancer Society's recommended screening guidelines allow women between 40 to 44 years of age the option for an annual mammography; 45 to 54 years of age should have an annual mammogram; and those 55 years of age and older may transition to biennial mammogram or maintain annual mammogram.

"Now we need Kiwis everywhere to drop a gold coin in the bucket - your gift helps us work towards our long term vision of zero deaths from breast cancer". With the touch of a button, the operator can also shorten scan time once breast tissue acquisition is complete. "This year Vitas House Hospice proudly celebrates 10 years of providing quality care to terminally ill patients with cancer".

Men can get breast cancer, too - about 25 are diagnosed each year in New Zealand.




"I lost my mom to cancer 18 years ago and ever since it has been a cause that I have personally given back to", says Michael Goldberg, Yalla's CEO.

Advances in treatment of breast cancer have substantially increased survival rates.

"We can evaluate breast cancer patients in a comprehensive, single-day setting - helping to decrease the time between diagnosis and treatment", said breast cancer surgeon Dr. Lisa Minton, in a statement. While this information is critical, it is equally important that we recognize the 155,000 people living with metastatic breast cancer (MBC), the most advanced form of the disease. Effective treatment becomes more hard if the cancer has spread, making the chance of survival much lower.

It comes after campaigners visited the Scottish Parliament to meet with MSPs to discuss how the charity, Breast Cancer Now, is helping women. For those who have a strong family history or genetic risk factors, you need to confirm with your health care provider the optimal age to start screening and how often it should be performed.

"Our goal is not only to bring awareness to the community, but also to raise funds", Honda said.
