Many of us have been affected by breast cancer. And, as more than 40,600 women are expected to die of the disease in the USA this year, it also remains the second leading cause of death after lung cancer, the Post notes.

In June 2002, Ohio-based mom of three Heather Salazar got full custody of a baby named Lexi, whose mother was, at age 23, battling stage IV breast cancer. We should do all we can to make sure we raise awareness about breast cancer by promoting annual screenings, providing information about where women can go to get screenings and places they can go for help if they are diagnosed with cancer. "Many of our employees wear hard hats on a daily basis for personal protection, and we're proud of their commitment to wear an EMCOR/Poole and Kent Pink Hard Hat in October to raise awareness for breast cancer, reminding women and men they can help protect themselves by getting screened". "I'm sick of seeing "pretty" and "pink" photographs relating to breast cancer". As the report also notes, the closing of the gap may simply reflect something researchers call a lack of statistical power - in this case caused by small numbers of breast cancer deaths among black women. Yearly screening mammograms can also help to detect breast cancer early, at a time when it is very treatable.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation is the only national body that funds breast cancer research with monies raised entirely by the Australian public.

Dr Normand Pouliot a researcher based at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Centre, and 2016 recipient of an MDCF research grant, believes improvements in breast cancer treatment come from innovation, and without research funding innovation stops.
