Collectors will be shaking their pink buckets at 49 sites across the area, aiming to raise funds for research into new targeted treatments, medical equipment for hospitals, life-saving awareness and education programmes, and support for people going through breast cancer.

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian women, with an estimated 26,300 women having been diagnosed in 2017.

A South Florida treatment center received a generous gift during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Over the past few years, the recommendations for breast screening have changed, and it can be confusing to know what is best to do.

“We believe ABUS can help clinicians find significantly more cancers than mammography alone, especially in women with dense breasts, ” said Luke Delaney, general manager of Automated Breast Ultrasound at GE Healthcare. "This year Vitas House Hospice proudly celebrates 10 years of providing quality care to terminally ill patients with cancer". Worldwide, the statistics are similar - in 2018 alone, there were over 2 million new cases of breast cancer. It is a great opportunity to dedicate some time to reviewing breast health in general and breast cancer screening in particular. I was lucky; after surgery they told me I did have stage-one breast cancer, but that only radiation, and a daily pill, was necessary. I urge everyone to be checked annually - yes, even men can have breast cancer.

"If someone sees us out walking around and we have a pink patch and they ask us about it and we start talking, maybe it will help them get tested", said SGT. Detz.

If diagnosed with breast cancer, treatment depends on the state of the cancer.

Each day one in eight Australian women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and 75 per cent of those are over the age of 50.

"We went in and did an ultrasound and they said I needed a biopsy", Hunk says. "What we want to do is identify those women at high risk (for breast cancer) so they can benefit from earlier screening and supplemental screening with MRI".

It comes after campaigners visited Scottish Parliament to meet politicians to discuss how the charity Breast Cancer Now is helping women.
