About 1 in 8 USA women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.

The Former National Women's Organizer for the Ruling NPP continued that the time to end breast cancer stigmatization is now and "so we must work together as one people to kick against this life threatening disease". In such instances, cancer may already have spread to other parts of their bodies, or metastasized, before they are even diagnosed, greatly reducing their likelihood of surviving the disease. The mother, Marty Rowe, in her late 80s, was diagnosed with lymphoma in July 2016 and was able to obtain a medical marijuana card in addition to receiving aggressive chemotherapy treatments. Many booth holders also showed their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Night by either wearing pink clothes or by displaying pledges of their support. Females who come with a family history of breast, pancreatic, melanoma or ovarian cancer have an increased possibility.

This year, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) is funding $63 million in grants to more than 300 scientists across 14 countries, making it the largest private funder of breast cancer research in the world.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting almost 300 communities to celebrate breast cancer survivors, pay tribute to loved ones lost and raise funds for the American Cancer Society. BCRF is recognized as the highest-rated breast cancer organization in the country and a leading non-profit example of efficiency and transparency.

The funds raised will be channelled towards funding the activities of the three NGO's in helping breast cancer patients and to provide free surgical brasseries and prostheses for underprivileged cancer survivors.

A pink river of more than 10,000 people of all ages flowed through Daytona Beach on October 27 for Making Strides of Volusia-Flagler, an annual walk hosted in cities nationwide by the American Cancer Society to raise money and awareness.

"Men tend to present later, meaning their breast cancer high stage when they present", said Partin.

Other clinical trials are looking at non-hormonal drugs for breast cancer reduction. Rojas says that establishing regular breast self-exams is important to detect changes in a woman's breast so that she may notify her health care provider.

Feedback from participants who have attended the workshops has been very positive with one woman commenting: "A great incentive to stay healthy with a group of like-minded people".

The doctor, however, called on the government to implement a policy to ban the consumption of alcohol and tobacco, to reduce deaths arising from breast cancer. You wear it on your head the day of chemo therapy and you actually wear it 4 hours once chemo is over for that day.
