Every October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and you can help raise funds for further game-changing research by hosting a Pink Ribbon Breakfast for friends, family and colleagues.

Aiello also commended Olean firefighters for wearing pink in October in recognition of those who have fought the disease. Breast cancer is also estimated to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer for women aged 20-39 years. It's also important to look at your breasts in front of a mirror so you can see if there's anything wrong.

Breast Cancer Care's chief executive, Samia al Qadhi, said: "Our staggering findings reveal just how much NHS nursing care for people with incurable breast cancer has stagnated". Fellows will complete rotations in breast surgery, pathology, breast imaging, medical oncology, radiation oncology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, cancer screening and community outreach, genetics, integrative oncology, survivorship, post-treatment rehabilitation, and research.

"Since summer, the organization has raised more than $10,000 for the American Cancer Society", Penny Horner said. While breast cancer rates are higher among women in more developed regions, rates are increasing in almost every region globally.

Know the symptoms- They are different and some people have no symptoms at all.

Those are the only people who get it, she said.

Over 70% do not assess people's emotional and physical needs at diagnosis and throughout their treatment, the figures show.

"I wish I would've known that younger women were able to get cancer", said Rodriguez.

The charity says that up to 15% of individuals may have a family history of breast cancer which is the main reason why they have developed the disease.

None of the women had hereditary cancer or had mutations of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, which can increase the risk of contracting breast cancer.

Diane Kabarungi a midwife at Oshen King Faisal says since it's evident that breast cancer cases are rising and that it is upon the public to be aware of this.

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world and among the top five causes of death among cancer types. "That's the thing with cancer, life goes on regardless".

Don't let the possibility of getting breast cancer loom over your head and stop you from living normally.

Tamara Link, an assistant professor in the School of Nursing at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, says these figures mean that one in eight women will face breast cancer at some point in their lives.

She is now campaigning to ensure every patient has access to a specialist nurse from the point of diagnosis and given the opportunity to speak to someone with secondary breast cancer.
