WCHN, MSK partner in breast cancer clinical trials

Consultant breast surgeon Prof Datuk Dr Yip Cheng Har speaks to Malay Mail during an interview in Kuala Lumpur

St. Vincent Anderson Women's Center has added breast MRI - magnetic resonance imaging - technology to its comprehensive program for diagnosing and treating breast cancer.

Sir Mike said: "Breast cancer is still the most common form of cancer in the UK". For example, mammograms can find 85 percent of cancers in fatty breasts but only 68 percent of cancers in very dense breasts.

The event has become a huge operation for the organiser and her loyal group and every penny goes to Against Breast Cancer, where Ms Chattoe sits on the chair of trustees.

The effort is to educate the public on the dangers of delaying in seeking prompt treatment of the disease.

"About one in eight women will develop breast cancer during their lifetime and that's nationwide, so that's something that impacts a community no matter how large or small", she said.

Sadly, every day around 12 Australian women will die from a women's cancer.

"Prevention pays and primary prevention is the best of options".

Ms Chattoe says "eight or nine" volunteers will help her blow up 1000 balloons on Friday, including longstanding allies Sandy Bradshaw and Laura Hounam.

He said working toward or maintaining a healthy weight; avoiding or limiting menopause hormone therapy; limiting alcohol consumption to one drink per day or less; regular exercises and avoiding sedentary lifestyle could reduce a woman's risk of getting the disease. Breast cancer treatment side effects, such as skin sensitivity, may occur.

"The modalities for preventing, and controlling breast cancer are well known". As you can see from my photograph, all it takes is an additional splash of pink to your normal outfit!

Since the program's inception, Covelli Enterprises has raised almost $6 million to support breast cancer programs in the communities it serves. Since inception, The Pink Fund has paid $3 million to working breast cancer survivors in active treatment. "I have many powerful women in my life". "A lot of times people are coming to us and saying, 'I'd really like to help raise money for you because you took care of my sister or my aunt or my mom or somebody, ' and so they want to give back knowing that we're actually helping people in the community". Early detection is key.

Then, in late 2017, during her annual screening before a visit with Janet Yeh, MD, breast surgeon at NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn, Gioia told the mammography technician about a lump she recently felt in her other breast.

Norwalk first announced its partnership with MSK late a year ago.
