Bowling Over Breast Cancer To Be Held

According to the SA National Cancer Registry, one in 29 women in South Africa will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

The sixth annual Framed in Pink: Bowling Over Breast Cancer bowling tournament will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, at Jamestown Bowling Company, 850 Foote Ave., Jamestown. Early·onset breast cancer also tends to be more aggressive than late·onset.

"It's so encouraging that, thanks to decades of research progress and NHS investment, more women are surviving breast cancer than ever before". Diagnostic tests (such as biopsy) are given to people who are suspected of having breast cancer, either because of symptoms they may be experiencing or a screening test result.

Figures from Breast Cancer Now, in collaboration with the York Health Economic Consortium, suggest that if the breast cancer mortality rates of all CCGs in England were brought in line with those of the top-performing regions (i.e. the highest 25%), more than 1,100 additional breast cancer deaths could be prevented each year.

"We're excited to partner with the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians on its Project Pink campaign", said Silvana Kelly, executive director of the Breast Cancer Resource Center of Santa Barbara.

"Preventing the spread of breast cancer, and finding ways to treat it effectively when it does, remains our greatest research challenge to improving survival - but we need the government to take every available opportunity to save lives". "These cancers are associated with somatic mutations in breast cells that are acquired during a person's lifetime, and they do not cluster in families".
