Throughout October, a bright pink WPD vehicle will be patrolling the streets of Watsonville, all to raise awareness of a deadly disease during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death in women, and in 2018 it's estimated that among USA women, there will be 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer detected. In 2017, about 30 percent of newly diagnosed cancers in women were breast cancers, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). While self-examinations are encouraged, Deti warns that they are not sufficient substitutes for professional screenings. It is generally used in addition to mammography because MRI may miss some cancers that mammography picks up.

Susan G. Komen® is the largest nonprofit funder of breast cancer research, after the US government.

Michelle Wilkes, a certified breast cancer navigator at NHP, explained that women are never too old or too young to get breast cancer and the earlier the cancer is detected the more successful the patient will be with treatment.

"The leading site of cancer death among females in Saint Lucia is the breast".

"If someone sees us out walking around and we have a pink patch and they ask us about it and we start talking, maybe it will help them get tested", said SGT. Detz.

Most women begin getting mammograms at 40 or 50, depending on which screening guidelines they and their health care providers choose. Approximately over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are still alive in the U.S today. "It's very comforting for patients to be able to receive all of their care locally in their community where they will have support from their family and friends".

She says the Wisconsin Well Woman program can help women who need additional screening. Some other symptoms can include common redness or swollen lymph nodes.

She also hopes it will create real change.

These recommendations are for women of average risk.

The Breast Cancer Clinic will given women access to medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and breast cancer surgeons at one location and during one visit, it said.

"Our multidisciplinary team of breast health specialists have years of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer".
