Methodist West honoring breast cancer awareness month

In addition to generating awareness with the pink truck, Price and his business partner, Jeff Poche, will also make a contribution to the Cancer Center to directly support cancer awareness, early detection and screening programs in the local area. Sophisticated diagnostic tools can detect asymptomatic breast cancer in its earliest stages.

"We've helped millions of women and their families find a way to live with, through and beyond breast cancer through our life changing face-to-face, phone and online services".

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) also referred to as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), and is an annual worldwide health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase the awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure. One in 75 women has a chance of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.

Dr. Lydia Schrader, breast surgeon and Comprehensive Breast Care medical director, and nurse practitioner Dara McKinley will talk about breast cancer's prevalence, risk factors and prevention, along with how to identify signs of the disease.

The American Cancer Society created Making Strides Against Breast Cancer community walks in 1993 to build awareness and generate funds to fight the disease across the nation.

"The proceeds raised will go directly to breast and other cancer charities to directly assist cancer patients", Sieger said in an email interview.

Sieger said since her diagnosis in 2010, six department members have had immediate family members battle with breast cancer. For each shirt sold, the dental organization donated $5 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The local Komen organization has distributed almost $18 million for free mammograms, treatment assistance, emergency rent and utility payments, child care and community breast health and breast cancer programs. "We tried to be there for support, and I told her that I was going to be more of a fighter with her".

Mary Alice Donofrio gave blood for the first time in memory of her mother who received several blood transfusions while being treated for breast cancer.

Matthew Martinez, a firefighter who works alongside Frediani, said breast cancer is always on his mind after his grandmother and some of her sisters passed away from cancer. Black women are more likely to die from breast cancer in every state, despite being less likely to get the disease than white women.
