Free Breast Cancer Screenings Available to Qualifying Tennesseans

Lynette PayneOct 27, 2018

This was part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is observed in October every year.

This weekend, the Avenue Viera is hosting the American Cancer Society's "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" with a 5K walk at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27.

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

ASA Savings and Loans Limited has organised free breast cancer screening for its clients in the Sukura "1" Business Centre in Accra.

Ellyn didn't know anyone in her family who had breast cancer until she underwent genetic testing. In one case, a young mother in her 30s lived with a lump for a year and a half, thinking she was not in danger because of her young age, only to later learn she had Stage 4 breast cancer.

At NYU Winthrop, we have a highly skilled multidisciplinary team who utilize state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that the proper guidelines are followed in order to provide patients with the best diagnostic care so that cancer can be detected early.

"I tried to prevent my thoughts from straying down the black hole of craziness", he said. "The goal of breast cancer research is to continually improve upon the current standard treatments and we must continue to push forward in this front". "And I think it fuels all of survivors".

A breast cancer survivor who is determined to make a difference for north MS women is organizing a charity walk this weekend in her hometown of Calhoun City to help patients get to doctor appointments and treatment centers.

"I have a girlfriend and a cousin that always says, 'No matter what I'm going through, I'm gonna look pretty, '" Greene-Leech said. "We were able to freeze embryos before I started chemotherapy", she says.

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. Predictive breast cancer gene testing is done to identify the risk of developing the cancer in a person having a family history of this disease.

"Sometimes we get caught up with, 'Well, my mama didn't have it, my sister didn't have it, my grandmama didn't have it, so we don't have to worry about it, '" Gardner said. "Just being here, raising awareness on such a public platform, will hopefully prompt others to do self-exams, get their annual screenings and be more aware of their breast health". So instead, it is vital that people donate directly to organizations like METAvivor, where 100 percent of donations go directly to metastatic breast cancer research, according to its website.
