Lynda Weatherby and Teri Pollastro are both living with metastatic breast cancer.
"Cancer is not a joke, it is the most fatal disease there is". So, the mammograms are safe and women should not overplay their risks.

I want there to be more survivors".

Mrs Florence Dedey, the Head of the Breast Unit at the Surgery Department of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, said this year's Breast Cancer Awareness examination has increased as compared to the previous years.
"I was afraid that she wouldn't make it", he said. But once the National Football League, retailers, manufacturers and administration take their cut, only about 8 percent of the profits go towards cancer research, according to Business Insider.
"There's still so much work to do", Davidson says.
