"This year, our team has made a decision to take a different approach to Breast Cancer Awareness Month", Candice Moore, the team mom for Owasso's White 7th grade football team, said. "I had no idea you could get breast cancer in your arm pit".

"They get strength from each other", Egert said.

A healthy diet, exercise and maintaining a normal weight are among factors that can help prevent breast cancer, Richardson said.

Concord has been participating in Making Strides since 1993, and has raised $7,481,964 for the American Cancer Society.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the United Kingdom and one in eight women will face it in their lifetime.

I hope that when people pass by and see the light they will realise that October is breast cancer awareness month. That's why I'm walking.

Mammograms are safe and the most effective screening tool used to find breast cancer, finding cancers at the earlier stages, according to Susan G. Komen For the Cure.

Gemma Flynn has become a NZ Breast Cancer Foundation ambassador, and the hockey champion is working hard to get the message out there that women need to take breast health seriously. She was 40 years old at the time. She had undergone surgery while writing a bill in legislation.

Brown says she is proof that knowing the risks, getting treatment and staying positive makes a difference.

She is my hero. Let's do this girls and play our part in potentially saving a life! As bad as this ordeal has been, there have been some unexpected benefits.

For more information on the screening process or if you have missed your last mammogram appointment call the breast screening unit on 01709 424807. That's because she too is a survivor. It only takes about 15 minutes to go through the short paperwork and actual breast exam. Because of that test and subsequent treatment, my two kids still have their mom.
