The LaSalle County Health Department, through an Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program grant, can pay for mammograms and pap smears for women who qualify. And, as more than 40,600 women are expected to die of the disease in the US this year, it also remains the second leading cause of death after lung cancer, the Post notes.

The Pink Patch Project is a nationwide, public awareness campaign created to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research, treatment, and education in combating this devastating disease.

Kayla Leier, a co-founder of Pink It Forward, joins Jack & Amy to talk about their mission of "providing hope and empowerment by enriching the lives of those affected by breast cancer".

Families come in many forms.

According to Louisiana Cancer Prevention website, louisianacancer.org, Louisiana ranks the second highest death rate of breast cancer in the United States.

Strom explained that a group of ladies at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club started Pink Ribbon after their friends were diagnosed with breast cancer. "Make October your month to get screened for breast cancer".

Early detection of breast disease is important to successful treatment. Schmid explained that in males the breast tissue develops in the same way a woman's will, but the hormonal changes during puberty will cause the female's breast to grow where in boys it prevents it from growing, reducing the chance of breast cancer. And if cancer happens to bypass a single individual, statistics say it will likely tap at least one of their friends or family members. The latest advancement in breast cancer screening and diagnostic technology, 3D mammography is more effective at detecting invasive breast cancers. He said at first doctors didn't diagnose his mother with breast cancer although "something didn't feel right to her".

The search for a cure for cancer is something that we should all get behind because it is in everyone's utmost interest as a human being to eradicate a disease that takes so many lives.

Zanubia Shams mentioned, "We are very proud of the "Pink it Now" campaigns achievements to date in UAE and we want to extend the benefits to Indian communities as well".

Women in Super's contribution to breast cancer research in Australia has now topped $33.2 million with the presentation of a cheque for $2.8 million to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Thursday evening.

Mammograms can show breast cancer when it's small and even before a lump can be felt.
