Early detection leads to successful treatment of breast cancer and can save lives.

In February 2017, Tanya Dobbyn from Waterford found a pea-size lump in her breast.

When King, who earned her bachelor's degree in mathematics from Carleton College in Minnesota before receiving her Ph.D.in genetics from the University of California, Berkeley, began her research in 1974, most in the field believed cancer was viral.

"I think of it as a choice because it is a personal decision". We, as a society must inculcate the practice of these modalities to ensure breast cancer is no longer a disease condition of public health significance in the country.

He said partnering with the KBTH in the breast cancer advocacy forms part of the Hotel's 13th anniversary and they owe it a duty to Ghanaians to share their love through the partnership.

"We are encouraging women to not allow fear to prevent them from seeking medical help".

If cancer running in the family is genetic, there are clues.

"They [Susan G. Komen] will give us gas cards so they can go to their treatment, their doctors, things like that", Bob said.

A family history and age are the most significant risks factor when it comes to breast cancer.


But she said the information gives patients powers too: It gives them control, which when dealing with a nightmare can save you from the villain.

"Approximately 20,000 women a year will get it, and this is just the new cases. And thanks goes to the Fair Association for helping to fight the fight". When results come back, she continues to help craft their plan.

Action means women getting screened, action means knowing what is normal for a woman's body, action means recognizing survivors.

"In 2017, there were only 168 newly diagnosed patients who came to Hospital Queen Elizabeth 2".

One more common misconception lies in breast cancer treatment.

Compare that to women without the mutation who have only a 12 percent lifetime risk.

In the Pink also offers free yoga for cancer patients and a salon for free head shaving and wig fitting.

"Even though it is scary to have some of these conversations, through having genetic counseling and possibly genetic testing people can make decisions to reduce their risk", she said. In addition to launching the "Close to My Heart" collection, H&M is also giving in-store shoppers the chance to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar, with the retailer pledging to make up the difference, up to the amount of US$25,000.
