White women saw more of a drop in death rates than black women - 1.9 percent a year from 2010 to 2014, compared to a 1.5 percent decrease for black women, according to a report published Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Black women died at a rate of 29.2 deaths per 100,000 people compared to 20.6 deaths per 100,000 for white women, the CDC said. She has spent nearly this entire year successfully battling breast cancer.Christine "Uta'atu, Treasurer, said since the establishment of Tonga Brest Cancer Society in 2007 various persons have donated books, brochures and other userful information on breast cancer.
The reduction in breast cancer mortality after the implementation of screening mammography was predominantly the result of improved systemic therapy". "I believe that when she tells women to look out for their breast health, they'll listen".
Black Sticks hockey player Gemma Flynn has joined the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation as an ambassador, determined to help get the message about breast awareness out to Kiwi women after her own grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer twice in three years.
The CDC report also revealed that the death rate among women under 50 years of age was the same for both races. Women with breast cancer could buy bras, or be fitted with prosthetic implants.
There can be some good reasons for the rise in the number of black women being diagnosed with breast cancer, like more women getting screening mammograms. Lack of physical activity, increased weight, smoking, and drinking alcohol are risk factors that can be prevented. When a cancer is found on a mammogram, a woman has a 92% chance of being alive 10 years later.
The campaign will encompass various outreach activities to help detect and fight breast cancer, starting with free mammograms for AXA customers at NMC Specialty Hospital untill the end of October.
