October-Breast Cancer Month-Hope Candle

Breast cancer is a cancer that starts in the tissues of the breast.

Over the course of a lifetime, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
Risk factors you cannot change include:
  • Age and gender -- Your risk of developing breast cancer increases as you get older. Most advanced breast cancer cases are found in women over age 50. Women are 100 times more likely to get breast cancer than men.
  • Family history of breast cancer -- You may also have a higher risk for breast cancer if you have a close relative who has had breast, uterine, ovarian, or colon cancer. About 20 - 30% of women with breast cancer have a family history of the disease.
  • Genes -- Some people have genes that make them more likely to develop breast cancer. The most common gene defects are found in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. These genes normally produce proteins that protect you from cancer. If a parent passes you a defective gene, you have an increased risk for breast cancer. Women with one of these defects have up to an 80% chance of getting breast cancer sometime during their life.
  • Menstrual cycle -- Women who got their periods early (before age 12) or went through menopause late (after age 55) have an increased risk for breast cancer.

    Early breast cancer usually does not cause symptoms. This is why regular breast exams are important. As the cancer grows, symptoms may include:
    • Breast lump or lump in the armpit that is hard, has uneven edges, and usually does not hurt
    • Change in the size, shape, or feel of the breast or nipple -- for example, you may have redness, dimpling, or puckering that looks like the skin of an orange
    • Fluid coming from the nipple -- may be bloody, clear to yellow, green, and look like pus

      I write this to inform you that you are not alone and that we as people can help support those in need. Me personally i have lost three family members to this deadly disease and am a strong advocate of trying to find a cure. Being that said, October is Breast Cancer Month and every year my company raises $5,000 or more to the Breast Cancer Organization. I am proud to be apart of a company that donates regularly and have had great success helping those in need of our support.
