Local police go pink for breast cancer

Ocean Davies Camryn Young and Diana Owens

Taking place on 13 October every year, National No Bra Day is held during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Breast Cancer Care's The Big Pink fundraiser, although it has no affiliation with them.

"A metastatic breast cancer diagnosis is scary, and people naturally have a lot of questions", said Jean Sachs, Chief Executive Officer of LBBC.

As a new business in the community, Larson says it feels great to be a part of such an wonderful cause.

"We need to be funding more programs". It is open Monday- Friday starting at 9 a.m. and Saturday starting at 8 a.m.

She advised community members to visit their primary care physicians for an annual wellness checkup, whether they are well are not.

"Having dense breasts — along with other risk factors — may make MRI necessary", said Niell.

Mike Jackson, the auto retailer's CEO, delivered thousands of gift bags to patients at the Michael and Dianne Bienes Comprehensive Cancer Center at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale. The NHS has estimated that breast cancer screening saves 1,300 lives a year in the UK.

3-D mammography takes pictures in thin slices, giving doctors a look at breast tissue one layer at a time, often making abnormalities stand out more than with 2-D mammography.

Breast Cancer Support Service Tauranga Trust provides support, advocacy and education for women and men who have or are experiencing breast cancer, and their families and the wider community. Elizabeth Harris with the American Cancer Society said wearing pink can help those people and the three million breast cancer survivors know they are not alone. She discussed the need for better healthcare for women especially those suffering from breast cancer.

A mammogram is a low-dose X-ray procedure used to detect the early stages of breast cancer long before it can be felt and usually years before physical symptoms can manifest.

Regular self-breast examination and regular mammograms are key to early detection. We urge our customers male and female to come into our stores and purchase the Breast Cancer Bracelet, Socks and Sneakers, when you do this you are doing your part to help the terminally ill at the Hospice and this is our aim.
