The Pink Fund, founded in 2006 by breast cancer survivor, Molly MacDonald, is a 501 (c)(3) public charity that provides financial support, which helps meet basic needs, decreases stress levels and allows breast cancer patients to focus on healing while improving survivorship outcomes.

"Breast Cancer Awareness Month is the ideal time for women to receive their clinical breast exam", said Macon-Bibb County Health Department Nurse Manager Beverlyn Ming. Women who increase their physical activity after menopause have a lower risk of developing breast cancer than those who don't.

"I take screenings a lot more seriously than I would say someone who hasn't necessarily been affected by it might because I've seen it first hand", Moten said. "That's why it's so important for women to schedule clinical exams throughout the year". But if you notice a change in your breast tissue, whether you feel a lump, whether you have nipple discharge or whether you notice skin changes like a rash or maybe your nipple is turning inward, we call that nipple inversion.

Susan G. Komen for OR and Southwest Washington said it's goal for 2018 is to focus on research into aggressive forms of breast cancer, better help women with health disparities and put forth more research into technology that will better detect the cancer.

She also predicted that among women carrying gene mutations, the risk of breast cancer was about 80 percent by age 70 whereas the risk fell to 8 percent among women without them.

If you have dense breasts but no other additional risk factor, the current recommendation is to go for a screening mammogram every one to two years. "It's about seeing how this fits into their life and their plans for the future", she said. Previously this information was available by request to the Breast Screening Program.

Nishat Linen's CEO Naz Mansha applauded Pink Ribbon's efforts to raise awareness in the society despite hard circumstances and initiate the process of practical healthcare services delivery. For those who have been diagnosed with cancer, she can help determine if there is a genetic reason behind the disease.
