Ten family members who had breast cancer launch fundraising appeal

Ten family members who had breast cancer launch fundraising appeal

Breast cancer remains the most common cancer in the United Kingdom, and it has never been more important to raise money for breast cancer research and care, something Asda's Tickled Pink campaign has been achieving for so long.

Lauren Locke, the physiotherapist on the Breast Cancer Recovery team was instrumental in designing the app's exercise programs.

While breast cancer predominantly affects women, men can also be diagnosed with the disease.

"That allows women to have more options for therapy, perhaps less intensive surgery, and definitely better outcomes".

The number of people diagnosed with breast cancer is steadily increasing and many cases still go unreported.

It shows another 30,000 lives could be lost to breast cancer over the next decade, without adequate research investment. Women looking to get a screening will only be treated by female radiology technicians, she added.

This is the second year that the Department will help to support this cause, by changing our uniform patches pink as well as one of our police vehicles.

THE Mandaue City Council recently passed two resolutions supporting and promoting awareness on breast cancer, which can hit anyone regardless of sex.

Breast Cancer Recovery is available now for Apple and Android devices.

"It just gives them a way to come together in the fight and really feel like they're making a difference", she said. "As long as there are Filipinas who don't do a breast self-exam regularly, there is still work we can do". An estimated 42,260 people will die from the disease in 2019, according to figures from the American Cancer Society. "The campaign is all about urging women to make the breast self-exam a habit for the early detection of the disease", Diratian said. "It wasn't even on our radar and then in the space of six months, it was her (mum) then I. It was such a shock", she said. The hotel will also hold a limited Pink Afternoon Tea promotion for the month.
