  • Wear it pink event

Lalitha Suresh, principal of Gems Our Own Indian School, said: "We organise campaigns every year because we want children to be aware of the perils of cancer".

Taking place during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, thousands of people wear it pink in their communities, schools or work places for Breast Cancer Now.

Plus, only mutations in certain genes qualify women for breast MRI in addition to mammograms for screening and early cancer detection. First is chemotherapy, in this chemicals are employed to treat the patients and hence it has large side effects and body becomes so weak after one chemotherapy and loss of hair is also there. "In addition, young women cannot smoke, try to keep their weight within a normal BMI limit, do self breast exams and see primary caregivers for a physical every year so that they can have a clinical breast exam".

Since 2003, Professionals has been a proud partner of the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), with offices donating a portion of the commission from each property sale along with holding fundraising events throughout the year.

In women whose tumours had previously been sensitive to hormone therapy, the benefit of palbociclib was even clearer - with the combination treatment extending survival by 10 months.

The group of women receiving both the drug and hormone therapy also saw a delay before chemotherapy of nearly nine months longer. It is published in the New England Journal of Medicine today (Saturday), and is being presented simultaneously at the European Society of Medical Oncology congress in Munich, Germany. "Our aim is that, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live - but if we are to achieve this, we all need to act now". To be frank, most people do have only a vague idea about breast cancer and the intensity of the malady.

According to Breast Cancer Now, one in eight women in the United Kingdom will suffer from the illness during their lifetime, with more than 11,000 women dying from it every year.

"This important trial provides further evidence that precision therapies for cancer, based on our scientific understanding of tumours, can offer real survival benefits over traditional treatments".

To reduce cancer risk now, university students should maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. But Breast Cancer Now believes that this progress could be undone by as soon as 2022, as a result of increasing incidence of the disease brought about by an ageing population and rising obesity. At some point I might need to move on to chemotherapy, but for the moment, palbociclib is doing the job.

Cancer has always been considered a disease of the aged.
