'Pinkwashing' of breast cancer topic of film, panel, October 17

Some breast cancers rely on estrogen to help them grow, and drugs like tamoxifen or the aromatase inhibitors (which include anastrozole) have always been prescribed to certain breast cancer survivors.

There were also uterine issues that had to be monitored, but for most women the side effects were worth the significant reduction in breast cancer. The 10 studies included a total of 1.4 million women among whom 4660 breast cancers occurred in women who reported ever having done night shift work. In 2016, 246,000 new cases of invasive cancer are projected to be diagnosed, along with 61,000 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.

This year's theme is "The Power of Knowledge in Prevention of Breast Cancer".

"In Great Britain, there are 2 million women, about one in six female workers, who are now working in some types of shift work, and over half million of them are working in shifts that involves night work".

"The American Cancer Society is deeply grateful for Dannon's generous support and joining us in the effort to eliminate breast cancer as a major health problem", said David Doan, Vice President for Strategic Sports Alliances at the American Cancer Society. Use of aromatase inhibitors without tamoxifen was also associated with reduced risk of cancer in the previously unaffected breast. "Events like this are very important because most people with breast cancer really don't know they have it until it's found on a mammogram or with a self examination".

About 12 percent of American women will develop breast cancer during their lifetime.

Local men teaming up to raise funds and awareness in the fight against breast cancer include, from left, Jim Evans, Mark Bush, Dale McCamish, Bob Hixson, Josh Pohlman, Randy Riley, John Luttrell, Rick Stanforth and Jack Powell.
