International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) issued a report recently which indicated that cancer will kill almost 10 million people in 2018. "Now, I see breast cancer patients, and 15 years later they're still coming back, they haven't recurred; it's obvious that screening has done wonders". After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, undergoing treatment and eventually living cancer free for 4.5 years, the unthinkable happened - her breast cancer had returned and metastasized (or spread), to her pancreas, liver and right lung.

Vice President, Women's Cancer Initiative Devika Bhojwani said, "I was very pleased to be a part of the event conducted by Jaslok Hospital on spreading awareness on early detection of breast cancer".

"Most women who develop breast cancer don't have a family history."Be breast aware in the shower, when getting dressed, looking in the mirror, putting on body lotion, lying down in bed".

Breast Cancer can be prevented.

Market study report Titled Global Breast Cancer Therapeutics Market 2018 Industry Research Report recently published on marketiframe.com is the key document for industries/clients to understand current global competitive market status.

"My father passed away from pancreatic cancer, one of my favorite aunt's passed from it, and a woman dear to me as well", said Washington.

The campaign will run on TV, radio, print and social media until the end of November this year.

She said the higher the stage, the less likely a patient is to survive. Hormone-receptor negative breast cancer is a less common type, which doesn't feed on estrogen or progesterone, and doesn't typically respond to drugs that target these hormones. The mother, Marty Rowe, in her late 80s, was diagnosed with lymphoma in July 2016 and was able to obtain a medical marijuana card in addition to receiving aggressive chemotherapy treatments.

Earlier, Chairperson of Kwara NAWOJ, Mrs Ayobola Olupinla, said the high death rate attributed to breast cancer informed the reason for the seminar.

The NLST study found a 20 percent decrease in the relative risk of dying of lung cancer with a 0.4 percent reduction in mortality after about seven years of follow-up.

One in eight women will have a breast cancer diagnosis in her lifetime, but the effects of the disease touch everyone. People attending are also welcome to bring family or friends.

The average breast cancer patient will probably go through many appointments, needles, devices, medicines, conversations, as well as times of uncertainty.

As per experts, Early Breast Cancer (EBC) constitutes only 30% of the breast cancer cases in India compared to 60 to 70% of cases in the developed world.

Breast cancer is a public health concern but taking responsibility on a personal level falls in on us. Why don't you walk the talk by joining the campaign to fight and to stop breast cancer today?
