"However, due to cost, length of the examination and lack of availability in all areas, it can not be used as a screening tool in place of mammography". They had breast cancer.

And while we see the color everywhere we turn, the facts prove that breast cancer awareness has made a difference: Since 1989, breast cancer death rates have declined by 39 percent, contributing to more than 322,600 lives saved.

Like any other of her contemporaries, skepticism from fellow researchers and other challenges also greeted American geneticist Mary-Claire King when she set out to establish a genetic link to breast cancer more than four decades ago.

Regular mammograms are the best tests doctors have to find breast cancer early sometimes up to three years before it can be felt and patients do not need a doctor's prescription to schedule your appointment. Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women.

It is also recommended that women regularly self-examine their breasts. She says many women feel a false sense of security when a mammogram or ultra sound comes back normal. Of those women, 250,000 were diagnosed when they were younger than 40. However, there are other, more important, factors for determining risk including: family history, age, race and reproductive history. Breast cancer can occur in women with all levels of density. Getting a mammogram is the only way to know if you have dense breasts.

"A lot of people choose to go through genetic testing because there is a plan they can take afterward", she said. Her company, AnaOno, continues this mission of providing garments for women who have had breast reconstruction, breast surgery, and mastectomy.

BC women will begin receiving their breast density information starting in mid-October 2018.

"Funds raised support the ongoing development of prevention programs, support services and vital cancer research".

In addition, grant funds and donations are also available to pay for women without coverage, so that no woman age 40 or over is ever turned away.

According to South China Morning Post, Mary-Claire King, 72, won this year's Shaw Prize for life science and medicine for mapping the first breast cancer gene, BRCA1.

Karen and her husband live on a plot of land in British Columbia.

"Take some individuals, survivors, take their minds off of maybe what the current situation they're in", said Chuck Spieser, Marketing Manager for Chevy Racing. Thus sprung Anna's interest in backyard gardening, chicken and goat keeping, recycling and self-sufficiency.
