Things to Know About Breast Cancer

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

"I think people see that Can Do Cancer is actually helping people right here in our community", Zaver says, "That's something different then when you donate to some other organization".

Cullum said, "We've kept going because you can support other people that are taking treatment, let them know what to expect". "There is hope, there is hope", said cancer survivor Mary Hughes. "The need for early and accurate detection simply can not be over emphasised", says Dr Jackie Smilg, chairman of the Radiological Society's sub-specialty group, the Breast Imaging Society of South Africa (BISSA).

Last year, more than 10,000 participants took part and raised more than $575,000 at the borough's event, said Nitisha Moore, American Cancer Society Bronx community development manager.

Slingerland said although younger women are not diagnosed as often, the concern is they're often diagnosed later, leading to more aggressive cancer.

She no longer participates in breast cancer events, but has found refuge in private Facebook groups for women with stage IV. "We were open and honest with them from the beginning", she says.

"For me, it also helps take the focus off of me", Williams said, "from wondering about what does the next day or the next couple of weeks hold, or when might my cancer appear back".

Following the walk, the three organizations will host the "DREAM to Inspire and Tour for a Cure" brunch from 1 p.m.to 6 p.m.at Katch Brew and Grill - located at 31-19 Newtown Ave.in Astoria - to honor those who now are battling or have battled breast cancer.




Suri said early diagnosis through mammography can save lives.

The 3D machines also keep records of a patient's previous scans, Suri said. "There are other people who are suffering but just don't know where to get help, where to get started". Insurance companies generally don't cover the cost of mammograms of women under 40, unless they are deemed high risk, which includes a personal history of breast cancer, a strong family history of breast cancer or a genetic mutation.

The British public are advised to be "breast aware".

"I've had family members, friends, who have succumbed to the disease", says Linda Garrett, a member of Shiloh Baptist Church.

During the month of October, employees are encouraged to wear pink every Friday and sell pink ribbons to raise money for fund life-saving cancer research.

She is now campaigning to ensure every patient has access to a specialist nurse from the point of diagnosis and given the opportunity to speak to someone with secondary breast cancer.
