Denville Decorates Downtown Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Denville Decorates Downtown Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

For the goal of the study, the research team analyzed data collected from previous studies looking at more than 1.2 million women. A portion of the proceeds from the badges will be donated to The Rose, a foundation whose mission is to reduce deaths from breast cancer by providing access to screening, diagnostics and treatment services to any woman regardless of her ability to pay.

Put simply, breast cancer is caused by a genetic abnormality. Two strips...maybe three...or four. With 44% of cancer cases diagnosed amongst women in the UAE being breast cancer, breast health is significant as ever. This is important for women who want breasts that are the appropriate size and skin color but do not want to undergo reconstructive surgery.

"I've gotten to do this, not necessarily at Martinsville, but at Atlanta and Charlotte and it's always fun to see how enthusiastic you (survivors) are; super inspirational to all of us", McMurray said. This is not something you can feel. We're learning more and making progress every day.

She has donated the handsome bespoke wedding dress Nathan Palmer designed for her to renew her wedding vows to Cancer Research Wales.


How do I know if I have it? "Hosting or attending a Girls' Night In event isn't only an opportunity to raise much-needed funds for women's cancers; it can also raise much-needed awareness about early detection and cancer prevention", she said.

And if you can get screened and sip on some wine, all the more reason to cheers to good health. "You have to be upbeat about it", Jewell said.

She only realised she had Grade 3 cancer due to her 11-year-old implants pushing out a lump. If you are unclear about your risk factor, please have a discussion with your primary care doctor about undergoing a breast cancer risk assessment. For example, mammograms can find 85 percent of cancers in fatty breasts but only 68 percent of cancers in very dense breasts.

Nancy Carroll, the Levis JCC's program director, said, "Sometimes, an event like this is the first time people have been able to receive valuable information from an organization like Sharsheret regarding what breast cancer means". Education assisting women navigate through their diagnosis and the resources that are available to them, van Dam said.
