The fund-raising event with the theme "Be a Warrior, Not a Worrier" is part of the activities organised by the Breast Cancer Network Việt Nam (BCNV) to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. "In Uttar Pradesh, we recently started a registry and the data output is extremely low, while there is no cancer registry in Bihar", said Ravi Mehrotra, director, ICMR-NICPR.

A little over a decade ago, Davidson of Huntington Woods was working for an advertising firm.

"And when they do stop", she added, "dry your eyes, get up and put on a new headdress, put on some lipstick and get out". It was a video that would change her life.

Thompson was 43 years old in 2015 when she called her doctor about a painful mass in her right breast.

"I didn't think younger women got breast cancer", she said.

It was pre-Angelina Jolie, it was pre-every celebrity coming out and talking about it".

PTCL, being proud of its women, hosted such a workshop as well with a breast cancer survivor who also enlightened the audience about the implications of hiding such a disease because of fear. In 2009, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) reviewed the evidence on breast cancer screening and revised their recommendations on breast cancer screening guidelines. Victoria Sanders hasn't been diagnosed with breast cancer, but she's taking precautions by having a double mastectomy. Your family history, along with your individual risk, should be considered and used to make the best decision for you.

It was the first thing Greene-Leech impressed on her audience Wednesday: Be on the lookout for signs of cancer and receive routine mammograms and other tests.

After getting a bachelor's degree from Georgetown University, Blackwood obtained her medical degree from Medical University of SC, according to a Rutgers Cancer Institute press release.
