‘Every eighth woman is at risk of cancer’

RE/MAX agent celebrates fun and fashion for a good cause

"My twin sister passed away from breast cancer, which metastasized to her bones and my big sister, 7-years older than I am, passed away at the age of 45", she said. She has since been treated and is now cancer free.

"I know that God is using me".

After discovering she inherited the BRCA mutation, which put Ellyn at a greater risk for breast and ovarian cancer, she had her uterus and ovaries removed as well.

"It was hard to lose my hair", she said. "I didn't know any". "I always feel like I don't need to worry about hereditary cancer because they have my back". "Thanks to my mom, I was able to do that".

Sanders had the double mastectomy in June. Which means, both Lynda and Teri will be living with cancer and undergoing treatment for the rest of their lives. However, three weeks before Karsyn was born doctors found another lump in Taylor's breast-area. "She's the only one that we know of that had it". Prestay said people have also donated directly online through the Real Yoopers Wear Pink website. "It was hard, very hard, but I can not and (would) not give up".

Though Fultz's story is not unusual, Jackson said it not very common.

Breast Cancer Now is the UK's largest breast cancer research charity.

Jackson said the severity of the cancer determines the type of treatment.

"It is more than just dealing with cancer, but it is the emotional and physical side-effects that deeply impact women and their confidence".

A tumor that won't respond to pre-operative chemotherapy makes surgery to remove it problematic, notes McKinney. Radiation side effects include shortness of breath and a cough while chemo side effects can be as mild as a headache, moderate as hair loss and severe as naseua and/or diarrhea.

"We wanted to do the Painted Pink campaign because we noticed that every year on campus each organization does their own thing", said Joyce Onwuchekwa, Co-President of Emerging Healthcare Leaders.

It is important to look out for signs of reddening or a rash, on the skin and around the nipple.

These briefings will include five carefully selected articles, created to help women adapt to life after breast cancer. The American College of Radiology (ACR) and Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) recommend that women at average breast cancer risk begin screening at the age of 40.

She said while most of the family made sure to get mammograms, it still served as a wake-up call for them.

Addie Mitchell, Clinical Nurse Specialist at Breast Cancer Care, says: "We know a third of women in the United Kingdom aren't regularly checking their breasts, so having Alexa on hand to guide them will help empower many with the confidence to build this potentially lifesaving habit into their routine".
