Breast cancer, like all cancers, is a genetic disease, caused by a lesion in the genetic material of cells in the breast which are called mutations that causes cells to multiply at random and without control forming tumors in the breast. These tumors can clog blood vessels and spread to other organs, putting the patient’s life at risk.
Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women, and approximately 2 million new cases are estimated per year in the world. Since it’s a genetic illness, prevention is not always possible although studies show that having good lifestyle habits, such as healthy eating, physical activity, avoiding excessive Alcoholic beverages can reduce cancer risk by approximately 30%, including breast cancer.
We will continue to get behind the efforts of our local Susan G. Korment Foundation branch as they carry on their operations and serve as a beacon of hope for women by offering a helpline, guidance with general inquiries, or even treatment assistance at local clinics and hospitals.
