Breast cancer plate marks 10 years, $3 million raised

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

For many, including Cydnee Greathouse, who are either fighting breast cancer or have survived it, the event has become an important part in the recovery process. We talked to Dr. J. Jaime Alberty-Oller, surgical breast oncologist at The Dubin Breast Center of the The Tisch Cancer Institute at the Mount Sinai Health System in NY to help separate fact from fiction. While we've shared plenty of stories of women who have successfully battled the bad illness (including celebrities like Shannen Doherty), it's also important to shine the spotlight on a demographic that doesn't get much attention: male breast cancer survivors.

She said that although the disease as a whole gets more money than any other cancer, metastatic cancer is often "written off".

"The gap between Kiwi women's survival with advanced breast cancer and that of women with advanced breast cancer overseas remains shocking".

"You don't realize when your diagnosed that it is for life, however long that life is", she said.

"On a handsome spring morning in 2015 I received a call from my mother saying she was on her way to the hospital with what she called "sudden bloating". Often times, the large breast cancer events consist of women who are in the early stages or who are considered to be survivors.

Women who haven't had a full-term pregnancy or have their first child after age 30 have a higher risk of breast cancer compared to women who gave birth before age 30.

"There's not always that power or confidence for younger women though".

BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION (BCF) launched Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) on Oct 6 with the Pink Ribbon Walk 2018.

Hurricane Michael crushes Georgia, heads toward Carolinas
The hurricane made landfall near Mexico Beach, Florida, at around 2pm on Wednesday, according to the NHC. By early Thursday, the ferocious storm's winds had slowed to 50 miles per hour as it crossed Georgia.

"Just everything", Robinson said about her favorite part.

"You either go into flight of fight mode", she said. "If we all know how to do breast exams, the cancer rates would actually go down a lot, so that's why we wanted to teach college-aged students how to do exams, what to look for and what not to look for". Of the men who develop breast cancer, the vast majority of cases are when the cells in or around the ducts begin to invade surrounding tissue. "I wish I knew that even though I lived a healthy lifestyle I could get it".

"To my knowledge, there are no documented incidents of a mammogram exposure resulting in a breast cancer in anybody", he said. At the Thomas & Dorothy Leavey Radiation Oncology Center at the MemorialCare Todd Cancer Institute, she received 28 straight days of radiation.

"Most women say it's very easily tolerated", she said.

They suggest that higher levels of oestrogen and a protein called IGF1 during pregnancy in women with heaver firstborns could help explain the increased risk of breast cancer in these women, although this possible link will need to be further investigated.

What is lymphedema? Does everyone who gets lymph-node surgery get lymphedema? "Thank you to everyone who has a Breast Cancer plate on your vehicle", said Strang Burgess.

"We're trying to stay one step ahead", she said.

"And it's getting faster and faster".
