Making Strides Against Breast Cancer This Sunday in Westchester

The webcast is created to provide medical professionals the newest information on clinical trials, novel agents and evolving treatment strategies, and emerging data.

Patient navigators helped guide almost 45,000 patients through the health care system.

The campaign has already reached a whopping £55 million for Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now, and with your help it can keep racking up the £££. While this is the figure given to all women with a BRCA gene mutation, experts say that cancer risks are more complicated than that, and vary from person to person. McCulloch said no information is needed, and if a mammogram is recommended, clinic staff will facilitate those for patients. There is now no known cure for breast cancer, so early diagnosis is critical.

Since 1995, PER® has been the leading provider of live, online and print CME activities focusing on oncology and hematology by providing high-quality, evidence-based activities featuring leading experts who focus on the application of practice-changing advances.

Educating communities about how a healthy lifestyle can help reduce breast cancer risk. Now many women who carry high-risk breast cancer genes choose to have breast removal surgery in order to reduce their risk of developing the disease.

"Because of the determination of Making Strides supporters, the American Cancer Society is there for people in every town affected by breast cancer, whether they're now dealing with a diagnosis, may face one in the future, or will avoid it altogether because of education and risk reduction", said Katie Goepfrich of the American Cancer Society.

United States breast cancer death rate down 38 percent since 1989. A striking divergence in long-term breast cancer mortality trends between black and white women emerged in the early 1980s and continued to widen over the last several decades, but recent data suggest that the racial disparity may be stabilizing.
