This will give 85,000 women across Europe between the ages of 40 and 70 either the existing mammogram test or the new personalised test and follow their progress for four years.

The sheriff's office plans to go pink annually in the month of October, Baird said.

"One of the things we say to people is breast cancer doesn't just happen in October", said Susan Samaroo, the executive director of the Maurer Foundation, a breast cancer awareness nonprofit that focuses much of its outreach on Oceanside High School students.

Breast cancer according to the World Health Organisation is by far the most common cancer in women worldwide, both in the developed and developing countries. Up through November 15, Novartis will donate $15 to Stage IV breast cancer research up to $200,000. After excluding 92 women that carried mutations to BRCA1/2 from this cohort, women with PTVs had 1.76 times the risk of death from breast cancer compared to those without PTVs.

Certified nurses from PJSC and Jerudong Park Medical Centre (JPMC) will be providing free breast examination check-up, glucose screening and lactation massage in a private and enclosed room; while the Health Promotion Centre from the Ministry of Health will help individuals identify and act on their personal risk factors.

"Beet it" is founded by Pure Heart 4 Cancer foundation, and was launched on October 31 in-parallel with the end of the global month of raising awareness against breast cancer. The researchers studied associations with tumor characteristics and survival outcomes for patients with rare protein-truncating variants (PTVs) in 31 cancer predisposition genes, including BRCA1/2.


Despite long-term cancer treatment symptoms including chemotherapy-related cognitive impairment [commonly known as chemo-brain], bone fractures from marrow breakdown in her foot, and frequent exhaustion, the former teacher dedicates her time and energy to her children and speaker events like Cones for a Cure.

On the other hand, a patient who is not aware that they have cancer may not utilise any of the limited but available services which has been most of the cases presented to the Society.

In order to encourage and instil good practises for our people to be proactive about health checks and receive early diagnosis, Samoa Cancer Society had launched the Vave Campaign earlier this year.

The success of this campaign has flowed through monthly awareness campaigns to date including Pinktober.

Dr Bujassoum noted that the Hereditary Cancer and High-Risk Screening Programme is the first of its kind in the region. It is important to check your breast regularly.

"Participants wearing our Breast Cancer Awareness T-Shirt will be entitled to exclusive discounts at selected vendors", stated the press release.
