Breast cancer awareness on a more wide- spread scale - Head of Breast Unit

Breast Cancer Screening Tests

As a member of the UMMC Cancer Institute's Interdisciplinary Breast Cancer Team, McKinney has worked with a multitude of patients including many with rare or unusual breast cancers.

From now through November, 50 cents from every taxi fare will be donated to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition. "If there's a suggestion of family history, it's wise to see a genetic counselor".

"As fans are coming into the Kings game tonight we're handing them some stickers, we're talking to them about why it's important and really trying to bring some awareness to the issue that everybody needs to get out there", said Metro Fire Capt. Chris Vestal.

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.

In response to the donation, Emily Verderame, MPH, from the Penn Medicine Breast Health Initiative said, "This gift enables us to link additional at-risk, medically underserved women in our community into mammography screening and along the diagnostic continuum of care. I want there to be more survivors".

"ICMR has established cancer registries across the country".

Using the Polo match as a backdrop to raise funds, Venter said it was the ideal way to combine a love for philanthropy and polo to create an event to serve as a platform to raise awareness for a disease that is most prevalent in women, but also affects a high number of men.

"It's a huge honor to be accepted on this committee that's so influential", Davidson says.

Doctors told Ellyn she had stage two breast cancer that had spread into her lymph nodes.

Sadly, Davidson knows many young women who have died because they either didn't know or fully understand their risk.

She called her doctor who ordered a mammogram and ultra sound, which didn't show anything. Recent scans indicate that she remains cancer-free.

"People didn't think about it".

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.
