Siân Gwenllian 'Wears it Pink' for Breast Cancer research

"I really couldn't have asked for a better response", Prestay said. "I never for one minute let myself think anything but positive thoughts". "We need to step out of our bubble where you can not even say the words "breast" and "cancer" together aloud", says Farah Mahmood, coming out of a Pinktober workshop. "We're just wired that way". "The auction went from the 14th of October to the 21st and I raised over $2,600".

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and a new campaign called Real Yoopers Wear Pink is fundraising for the benefit of the U.P. through the American Cancer Society.

She added: "As a breast cancer survivor, I feel touched by the amount of effort that has been put into the cake sale and dressing in pink".

For the future, she hopes breast cancer treatment conducts further research in genetics, she said. She serves on several national committees including the American College of Surgeons, the CDC Young Women with Breast Cancer Committee, and Young Survival Coalition. Growing awareness regarding breast cancer among the adult population and availability of sophisticated technologically and advanced treatment options are factors propelling the market in these regions.


"One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer throughout their lifetime". It is about 70 times less common among black men than black women. If you ignore it, then you run the risk that it spreads. "And quite frankly, if you get detected early, you can actually treat breast cancer and other cancers quite successfully". "We're out there together to help raise awareness for woman to get their mammograms and also celebrate the lives of woman who have had breast cancer, have recovered from it and to celebrate those who didn't", said Bloomquist.

"Women should always get screened, especially if they are over 40 years old", Blackwood said. "We were able to freeze embryos before I started chemotherapy", she says.

A woman from Texas live streamed the surgery to remove cancer from one of her breasts to 26000 people. She is now the president of the organization FORCE, Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered. That heightens a person's risk of breast cancer dramatically. His wife thought he might be having a heart attack.

"I watched the spot, I was completely touched". During preventative surgery to remove her ovaries, doctors discovered her mother had Stage 1 ovarian cancer. I didn't think cancer could happen to me, but it did. "I flashback to what if I hadn't gone in".

"It lowers the chance that the cancer will come back", the Society says.
