Women deserve 'game-changing' breast cancer medicines

Louise Tatum, a south side city worker, has been diagnosed with early breast cancer. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in April and had five tumors in her right breast.

For each online vacation rental reservation made at www.crhmaui.com and www.crhkauai.com in October, Condominium Rentals Hawai'i will donate $10 toward breast cancer prevention. The fire chief said his mother was a breast cancer survivor and that numerous firefighters in the department have family members or friends who have dealt with breast cancer.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) held their annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk to celebrate breast cancer survivors and remember those who have been lost to the disease.

New Zealand women with advanced breast cancer die sooner than those in comparable countries, with median survival of only 16 months, compared to 2 to 3 years elsewhere.

Mulholland came with a group of friends including Tami Hawkey of Elida, who says it's important to support causes like this because you never know when it will strike someone you care about. It took me some time to come to terms with having to face more surgery, more hospital appointments and the reminders of the terrible struggle I went though, even though this time, as many people did point out "Well at least it's not the cancer back again". "So today's failings must not be swept under the carpet".




A 3-D mammogram exam is nearly identical to the traditional mammogram, and women will notice little difference in the procedure if they've had mammograms in the past. "Sometimes they say, 'This looks suspicious; you need to get a diagnostic mammogram, ' which is a more focused and intense mammogram to try to look at specific areas a little more closely". Of the men who develop breast cancer, the vast majority of cases are when the cells in or around the ducts begin to invade surrounding tissue. Breast cancer is curable up to 98-99.5% if detected early. These drugs can add years to women's lives and dramatically improve quality of life. A nurse with the Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force, will help Tatum navigate the system with her disease from start to finish.

Those are the only people who get it, she said. These lifestyle changes are easy, effective, and extremely simple which can aid in preventing breast cancer.

A key reason these drugs are not funded is New Zealand's outdated model for medicines funding, which has not kept pace with advances in medicines, she said. So I asked her: 'You are all covered up and you inject these into my body? "I'm thankful for everyone I've met on this journey".

What should I check for, what does a lump feel like?

"These annual proceeds have provided us with the resources to help ME residents living with and at risk of breast cancer with direct financial assistance for their uncovered treatment, travel and other qualifying breast health or breast cancer related needs".
