"We are also here to remember those that we have lost through the breast cancer and those who are still fighting, and just trying to inspire those that are still going through the battle and seeing all the other survivors, knowing that they can make it through as well".

All of the 80 staff across the six branches will wear their pink T-shirts as many times as possible during the month, with the change of colour being compulsory on Tuesdays and Fridays. While we've shared plenty of stories of women who have successfully battled the bad illness (including celebrities like Shannen Doherty), it's also important to shine the spotlight on a demographic that doesn't get much attention: male breast cancer survivors.

"People say you are a survivor and I don't agree with that because I never felt like I was in jeopardy", said Bauman, who went through four rounds of chemo and underwent a double mastectomy in April.

A group of Councilman Mark Gjonaj's family, supports and staff at last year's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. It's a yearly campaign that helps to educate people about the importance of early screening, testing, and much more.


Pink Week, from October 15 to 19, is dedicated to breast cancer awareness, and CAC raise funds by selling T-shirts. While breast cancer rates are higher among women in more developed regions, rates are increasing in almost every region globally.

If we are hoping for an early diagnosis, it is important to remember that annual clinical breast exams by a physician and regular mammograms, as recommended by your primary care provider, are essential steps in the fight against breast cancer.

None of the women had hereditary cancer or had mutations of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, which can increase the risk of contracting breast cancer. "I'm thankful for everyone I've met on this journey". Women at increased risk of breast cancer, for example with a strong family history, may be eligible for breast screening before turning 50. A nurse with the Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force, will help Tatum navigate the system with her disease from start to finish. The spread of cancer is called metastasis.

Individuals can receive information about breast cancer testing, prevention, and treatment as well as learning lifestyle tips to avoid the condition.


"The establishment of the State's Breast Cancer Awareness License Plate has provided Maine CDC funding to support more than 4,700 Maine women in receiving breast mammograms", said Scott Lever, Maine DHHS deputy commissioner of Health Services.

Many women with stage IV often have to stop working to navigate the intricacies of clinical trials as they adjust to the idea that their time is likely limited. "So early detection is one of the things that will help us treat somebody and cure somebody if they have breast cancer".

Six months later, after the lump grew larger and got more painful, she had a biopsy.

It's all about the size and placement of the tumour, says Patt, which can be responsible for a change in the size or shape of your breast, or cause of painful swelling.
